    just had a thought ,maybe you are referring to a/the icon for you video device ,it would have choices of screen sizes ,it may have gotten remove some how,how to get it back with out reinstalling the Video software im not sure , ,the icons down by the clock are they set to show all or does it hide some ,maybe.

    edit= go to control panel ,look for notification area icons ,see if the icons is listed there but unchecked ,good luck

    On my laptop, which uses gestures on the touch pad, if I touch the pad with two fingers and then move them apart it will zoom the screen. If I do a pinch it goes the other way. It's the same as holding the ctrl key down and pressing the up or down arrow. If your not carful when your two finger scrolling you could accidentally change your magnification.
