Hi, I am using Fedora-19, my son selected zoom by the Login menu and now every time the system reaches the login section, I only see an enlarged arrow on a black screen. How do I zoom out to see the login list of names?

Indeed, click the "Virtruvian Man" icon to the left of the volume icon and click off Zoom. The keybinding is Alt-Super-8.

(to be clear Super is the key with the Windows logo on it)

The keybind was my savior! Once I selected the zoom, it totally messed up the "Virtruvian Man" menu so bad that I could not get back to the selection to turn it off! Thank you so much! I'm on 4.20.11-200.fc29.x86_64

I think it should be from the accessibility panel. See if you have an accessibility icon in the top right hand corner and switch off the "Zoom". I don't think there's a hot key, but it might be worth searching around on Google for.
