Anki Can Not Zoom Back Out

Once you zoom in too far (i.e. 200%), you can not zoom back out as there is no scrolling function in preferences. Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling Anki?

    Renaming your prefs21.db file to something else will reset your settings:

    If you have multiple profiles you'll need to add them again using the same names as before.
