    Hey guys, i have a question! sometimes when i get my nokia 920 out of the pocket, i notice that the screen is zoomed in and i hardly c anything. i hardly can unlock or if i mange to unlock it, i cant use it at all since its zoomed in! i looked everywhere how to zoom out to the normal size of the screen but i didnt know how. The only way is to turn off/on my Lumia 920! Does anyone knows why this happens and if it happen again how to zoom out with out turning the phone off?

    What do you guys think?

    Try Settings -> Ease of Access -> Screen Magnifier

    If on:

    "To Magnify, double tap with two fingers. To pan, use two fingers. To change the magnification level, use two fingers to double-tap and hold, then pan up or down"

    That's the only thing I can think of. I hope that helps.

    Just double tap the screen with 2 fingers. Now, a harder way to fix this is to restart the phone. You can also turn off the setting 'screen magnifier'. Also, you can move around with 2 fingers pressed on the screen.

    It's a great feature to have. Especially for webpages that are not mobile friendly and a pain to read
