    i has just recently downloaded a game that required fullscreen. After i deleted the game, all my desktop settings were messed up. First, i couldnt see my start bar. Now I can after restarting, but the text size of everything was larger than usual. Even when you would open a window, the area where the close, minimize and maximize buttons (that bar) had large text. I went to my properties and changed my desktop theme. Now everything is extremely small. The area that says "file , edit, etc." is extremely small, however the interent font size is alright. Could anyone suggest any ideas on how to fix this problem?

    Have you tried changing your screen resolution?
    Right click your Desktop and select Properties.
    Settings tab, and see what the settings are. Depending on your monitor, something like
    800X600 or 1024×768 should be normal.
    You could also try a system restore to before your game changed any settings.
