    2. Once this feature is enabled, while in a system menu or in a game, press the HOME Button twice to access zoom mode.
    3. Use the X or Y Buttons to zoom in and out, or use your fingers to zoom in and out.

      While in zoom mode,

      • You can lock the zoom level by pressing the HOME Button once.
      • To unlock and adjust the zoom level, press the HOME Button again.
