Mac Problem – When moving the mouse moves the entire enlarged screen
I’ve owned my iMac for just a few months now. I love it, but the most frustrating hiccups I’ve had is when I’ve had my toddler, Rocco, on my lap and he’s gone crazy on the keyboard. He’s already renamed my hard drive, but the worst thing that happened was when the whole screen became larger and would move around with the mouse. It really freaked me out. It makes the computer only just usable. Just usable enough to try to find the fix.
The first time this happened was about a month ago, and I managed to google the answer. I promptly forget what the trick was, and today it happened again.
Well, I very much freaked out this time when I just couldn’t find the same web page with Google as I had before.
But I did find the fix. It turns out that Rocco had pressed the Control key while I was scrolling up a web page with the middle scroll button of my mighty mouse. That made the screen zoom in wildly.
All I needed to do was hold down the control key and scroll downwards with the scroll button.
I’m posting this partly as a reminder note to myself for next time Rocco does this trick, and for anyone else who has this happen to them.
