    Hi...Idiot here. Somehow I changed the background in windows and now everything is HUGE. I managed to find a browser to work and that is visually "ok." But everything in my computer is out of reach due to the size of all icons, fonts, etc. How can I get it changed back? I can't even get to system restore to go back to a restore point. Frustrated! When you all stop laughing, I sure would like some tips. Thanks.

    Not sure what happened. Can you right click on an empty spot of the desktop - Screen Resolution - and change the resolution to something greater? For example, with 1080 x 720 everything on the screen will be smaller than with 800 x 600.
