    So, I was putting on my new screen protector. Waited the hour. Now everything on the screen is magnified so much I can't even see the keyboard. Well, just one line of it. I tried pushing together, resetting, and I can't get it to work properly. Also, I have to use three fingers to drag.
    Can someone help?

    Sure sounds like you did

    I have a Zagg protector on my iPhones and iPad and they in no manner detract as you describe. Sounds like you should pull it off and try with a Zagg or at least another.

    Wolfpuppies3, it wasn't the protector magnifying it, I somehow enlarged everything, and could not fix it.
    TJK, thanks for the info. I fixed it, but for the life of me I don't know how!
    I'll be reading these forums for a long time to learn the secrets of the iPad.

    Spink10 that is exactly what happened. I panicked, and came here. Such an easy fix, but it makes your butt pucker!:D

    I chased my tail on that one for almost an hour on my iPhone and even set up an appointment to go see the Evil Genius Bar! Finally googled around and found that solution on the Apple support forums. Don't feel bad!
