    All of a sudden my icons and applications are huge. So huge that they do not fit on the screen. I have tried everything but no luck. Has this happened to anyone else and if so how can I correct it.
    Thanks for your time.

    Double tap with 3 fingers to return to normal, three finger double tap again to zoom in again. If you don't want this feature, go into Setting > General > Accessories > and turn off the Zoom feature.

    Apologies, Pocobear, but a minor correction: The Zoom feature is under Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. (It's not Accessory).

    But, I mainly posted because I didn't know the iPad could do this. Kind of fun, playing with the 3-finger tap to zoom in ... tap to zoom out ... zoom in ... zoom out ...

    New things to learn - every day! :D

    But, crosj, you can turn it off if you don't like it (which I ended up doing ... 'cause I couldn't figure out why I needed it to zoom...). Just go to the Settings as outlined above.

    Remember though, it's a 3 finger double tap to zoom in/out or a 3 finger tap-and-hold to move the screen around while in zoom mode. Two fingers aren't going to work...

    Good luck.
