My wife lets our baby daughter play with my iPad, and something she did has caused the magnifier/zoom window (one of the accessibility features) to end up tall and narrow instead of the usual size and shape. How do I resize it so that it is more useful again?

    I was going to say ask the baby, but that might not work :)

What you want to do is:

  1. Toggle the zoom
  2. Locate the rounded rectangle at the bottom of the zoom window(the one you use to move the zoom window around) Step 2
  3. Tap that once(without dragging) Step 3
  4. Tap "Resize Lens" Step 4
  5. Use the classic resize tools Step 5
  6. Tap outside of the window to save the configuration.

Hope that helps!
