Display reverts to Extra large icons and font

After my PC goes into sleep mode, I tap any key to bring it back up, the password menu bar is now three times larger than it normally is. I put in my password an my desk top comes up with icons that are three times their normal size. If I open a window, the fonts are extra - extra large.
I have to reboot to get it all back to normal and then my desktop icons are scattered all over the desk top...whats going on? I'm running on Vista.

Icon very big how can i make it small


First of all try this: Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.
If it doesn't help, follow the steps below and repeat the above (step 5.)
  1. Tap the "Settings" menu from the iPhone home screen.
  2. Tap "Accessibility."
  3. Tap the word "Off" next to "Zoom" to turn the Zoom feature on.
  4. Return to the iPhone home screen.
  5. Tap the iPhone with three fingers twice in succession. The home screen icons will be magnified to 200 percent. To adjust the zoom level, touch the screen with three fingers then move them up to increase the zoom, and down to lower it. The next time you tap the screen twice with three fingers, the iPhone will automatically return to your custom zoom level.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

All the icons and font etc are large how can i adjust it back to the original size ????


Hi there Marivel,

Hope this is not too late. To bring back those icons and font to original size, just tap you 3 fingers to the iphone screen at the same time. That's it.

Chances are, you might probably grabbed your iphone from your pocket and accidentally placed 3 fingers on the screen.

Please let me know if this helps :)

Are you sure it isn't just set to turn monitor after that long, sleep mode, or hibernation? If it set to turn monitor off, then moving the mouse will bring it back up. If it is going into sleep mode, hit the space bar or another key to wake it up.
