CSS CSS Layout CSS Media Queries The meta Viewport Declaration

My code for the media query zooms out while active instead of stopping the browser from zooming out on mobile device

code I have for the media query as follows:

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

I do not understand why this zooms the browser out while the code is not commented out, and when the code is commented out, it is zoomed in.
