Sometimes I'll be working with my iPad and it will suddenly magnify everything on the screen as if I've zoomed it, and I can't get it go back to its original configuration without accidentally doing it, or just turning it off and letting it sit for a while.

A - What am I doing that causes this, and
B - How do I "fix" it when it happens?

Thank you very much in advance.

Found the solution online:

There is a zoom functionality on the iPad that may confuse users sometimes. You may end up in a spot where you zoomed in way too much and the screen is way too big, making the device unusable.

This is all part of the Zoom setting under General > Accessibility > Zoom. It enables you to zoom in and out by double-tapping the screen with 3 fingers. So if your screen is stuck where it’s big, just try double-tapping with 3 fingers to get out of this mode. You can also try dragging 3 fingers down on the screen to decrease magnification.
