    Yesterday I ran into a display bug related to a zoomed in view on my Nokia Lumia 920 with the Portico update.
    I was reading a PDF document from a website in PDF Reader. I had to zoom in quite a bit to be able to read the document. When I was done I used the back arrow without zooming out to a normal view. The back arrow took me to the web page with the link to the PDF file. The IE10 display was still zoomed in. I pressed the Home button and back at the Start page everything was zoomed in such that the small tiles were just about as wide as the screen. I could do some scrolling (very limited) but couldn't zoom out or in at all. The apps list was also severely zoomed in. I had to restart the phone to clear this issue.

    There is a setting in the accessibility settings to enable/disable this feature...

    Man... I understand (somewhat) not searching the entire forum, but the solution is tight in this thread, only a couple of posts or so above yours. Just put a little effort in reading.

    This is not a bug. just double tap the screen with two fingers and it will zoom back.

    Thanks! This actually works on windows phone, when ur screen is oddly zoomed in just double tap with 2 fingers like he said. and the screen will go to normal. It feels like a bug because it happends so random. but it is actually just a normal function.
