    Do a two finger double tap on the screen.

    Go into settings > Ease of access and turn off Screen Magnifier.

    This could be one of two things,
    if the text at the top of pages is running off the screen so you can't read it, then this is a design layout decision.
    See Features | Windows Phone Features (United Kingdom) for some normal screenshots
    If the text in messages is too big this could be sorted by settings>ease of access

    I hope this helps

    Are you talking about in the web browser? You zoom out by using two fingers. Start each finger an inch about and slide them together. Do the opposite to zoom in.

    This also works in places like photos.

    If she logged in using ie, clear all history inc passwords.

    If she logged in on the phone, ie under accounts, go to accounts and delete her hotmail account.

    go settings, accounts, and then delete that account.

    If she logged in using the browser (internet explorer) instead then there should be a link at the top, or very bottom of the page to log out. I would then log another account in just to be sure.

    It wouldn't be so bad if she was a kid but she is nearly 30

    well I tried delete he account but had no luck (couldn't add my e-mail address first because I cant use the keypad yet) I told her yesterday when she set up the basics for me this was my phone and I didn't want anything belonging to anyone saved on my phone so I have restored factory settings (could be bad thing but its done ) and am going to find a you tube idiots guide on how to use the key pad

    Second guessing what happened..to set up your Windows Phone initially, you need a Microsoft/Hotmail account. If your daughter set up this phone for you initially, she may have entered her Hotmail username. Unfortunately, you cannot delete this primary email account, I believe, unless you reset it to factory settings and start all over again. Now, since you already restored to factory settings, you should use your own Microsoft/Hotmail/Outlook account to set up your phone again. If you don't have an Outlook account, please sign up for one from a PC at www.outlook.com and Create new account. If you already have a Microsoft/Outlook/Hotmail account, please use it as your primary email when setting up the phone. Hope this helps.

    Hotmail account once setup for the first time becomes the default account and cannot be removed (sadly) unless the phone is reset. Also a Hotmail/Live/Outlook account is required by the phone to download apps (free and paid) from the Windows Phone Store so if you don't have any of those email accounts now is the time to create one and set it up on the phone.

    If you're using the Facebook app then there actually is no option to save the photo to your phone which is annoying. The only way to do it would be to take a screenshot whilst viewing the photo (power button + home button).

    If you're using the People app to browse your Facebook feed then all you have to do is tap on the photo, tap on the three dots at the bottom right of the screen and tap the 'save to phone' option.

    or if you are using the mobile facebook page, go to the image you want to save, view in full size and then long press on the image( it should give the option to save to phone)
