    Help, I'm a PC person using a Mac for the first time in years. I was trying to copy some text and hit control C and the next thing I know the images on the monitor are enlarged. I'd like to get back to the normal settings. Anyone know what I did and how to get back to the regular settings (it also may have been that it happened with control v, I do the two so quickly, it may have been on the second of the two that things changed).

    You probably held the control button and then moved your scroll wheel which is the shortcut way to enlarge the screen. Just do it again and scroll the wheel backwards and it should put it back.

    btw. Copy/Paste on a Mac is Command ⌘+c and Command ⌘+v.
