I upgraded to a Fold 5 from a S8 and during set up I must have made a wrong choice. I'm legally blind an set up magnifier. I gave something permission and now when I click on magnifier my camera opens and is in magnifier mode. I checked camera app, no permissions turned on. I cannot find how to check magnifier permissions. Nor have I found how to reset magnifier without doing factory reset. I really don't want to start all over.

Hello Lgtning, Welcome to the Community. We understand how frustrating it is when the settings change the function of the phone undesirably.

Have you looked under Settings>Accessibility>Visibility Enhancements?

Scroll down to Magnifier and tap on that. There should be a toggle to turn off or on the Magnifier shortcut that uses the camera.

Let us know if this helps.

@Lgtning Toggle the setting off. This should stop the magnifier from using the camera. 

Magnification may be a better option. You can add a shortcut to the navigation bar on the phone and when accessed, the window can be moved around the screen if necessary.

Here is some more information on the Accessibility settings: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00085504/
