My macbook seems to be starting in "safe mode" although it doesn't say anything about starting in it.  The screen is magnified and I don't know what to do to get it back to "normal"? help


macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    you may have accidently enabled the accessibility mode. Check the different options in "accessibility" in your "system preferences"

    Check in System Preferences>Universal Access>Seeing and see if Zoom is on. If you have toddlers or cats this can accidentally turned on by hitting a group of keys that include Option + Command + 8.


    To prevent this being accidentally activated in the future go to SystemPreferences>Keyboard>Keyboard Shortcuts>Universal Access and uncheck all the boxes.
