    Default GS3 screen won't scroll and require tap then double tap to do anything! Please help!

    Had the S3 for a while now and never seen this before. The screen requires a single tap, at which time an outline box appears around the app or widget icon, then it requires a double tap to open what ever is selected. Tried to go into settings but without scroll ability, can't do much. Please help! Don't know how or why this happened or how to fix it!

    Is the phone talking to you when you perform these taps? Sounds alot like TalkBack is enabled.
    If I recall correctly you had to drag two fingers on the screen to navigate. Settings -> Accessibility -> TalkBack.

    Talkback is a setting in the Accessibility section of the setup menu.
