My son was playing with my iPod Touch 4th generation and changed the screen resolution. I don't know how to fix this.

How do I change the screen resolution back to what it is supposed to be?

Everything on my iPod is way too big and I can't do anything.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

I think you may have turned on the Zoom or Large Text feature. Head over to Settings > General > Accessibility. turn zoom off in there, or Large Text.

Thanks a lot. It worked. – Teresa Jun 5 '11 at 21:41
@Teresa Great! Glad to hear it – Simon Sheehan Jun 5 '11 at 21:41

In case your son does it again: If you ever get stuck at a fully zoomed in view, double tap with three fingers to fully zoom in/out.
