    Hi I managed to bungle the appearance settings on my pc.
    In some places the buttons are big and fonts big and bold and others it's too small again.
    It's driving me insane. I went to Display Settings/Advanced, but it is quite cryptic and dont understand what is what, in fact it just makes things worse when I fiddle there.
    Is there any way of resetting everything to default?

    It's not possible, this has been coming over a long period of time so I don't know when to reset it to.

    I would suggest updating the video drivers and see if that helps.

    One other thing you might want to try is chaging the Desktop themes in display properties to a different theme.

    The drivers don't help, I actually updated them last week and it didn't do anything.
    Almost thought we had it with your suggestion of changing the theme, but no go unfortunately. Good suggestion though, didn't think of that!!
