  8. 8
    We are looking for the option that says, "Magnification gestures".
    This option allows us to zoom in and out of the screen, in order to see things more clearly, to magnify words or images, or just to help us to see what is happening if we need to. The option is currently disabled. It says "Off" underneath it, and it says "OFF" in the icon on the far right-hand side of the screen.

    If we want to turn this option on, just press down on the icon.
    It is currently gray. If we press down on it, part of it will turn green, and it should say, "ON" in bold, black letters. But, we may not want to use this function because it's causing us to zoom in unintentionally and causing us irritation.
