    Default HELP! Stuck in accessability mode.

    Somehow I've gotten my Nexus 7 in some kind of accessability demo mode where I cannot control it. If I try to go to home or anything it won't let me.
    Everything has a yellow box around it and everytime I try to click/touch, like the back button or home button, it just makes a click sound. I can't get
    back to settings or anything. HOW DO I Get out of this! Thanks

    Try to turn the Nexus off, then holds the volume down (or up) button while turning it on again. This should present you with a boot loader, where I believe you can choose to boot normally, i.e. not accessibility mode.

    My choices in bootloader are "start" "restart bootloader" "recovery mode" and "power off".
    I tried recovery mode but after it rebooted I was still in the mode where items have a thin yellow line around them
    and I can't get out of it. I can't get to settings to turn this off! Nothing will let me swipe.

    Try holding 3 fingers, at the same time, on the touch screen. It should cancel accessibility mode.

    You're welcome! Yes, it's funny how many posts I read here where I think to myself, "Just call Google." Of course, the forums are a good resource and many people here are very helpful and knowledgeable, but sometimes it's easier to just call the people who built the thing (or whose software runs it)!
