    Hello Everyone,
    One of my idiot strudents has tkaen it upon themselves to change the font and desktop size evverytime they are on the computer becuase he can't quite grasp that these are MY computers, not his. Anyway, the size of the icons and font are small, thus making it hard for my other students to read, so can someone tell me the best way to restore the icon size and font size. i would appreciate it.

    Right Click on Desktop/ Properties/ Click the settings tab and move the screen resolution slider to a smaller setting.

    That should restore your desktop size to a readable setting!

    Should be under Display in the Control Panel.

    But usually people change the screen resolution to their liking, so what you can do is right click on the desktop, choose properties and you should be able to change the size there. (Usually a decent size is 800x600, though most monitors are on 1024x768). You can access this through Display icon too.
