    What are the default text settings on Windows8 for pc?

    My husband and I bought a new computer (yay tax season) and I was trying to see the text better. I went to the "make text size larger" and changed everything to twenty without thinking twice about it (yes, yes, I was being a dummy). I figured if I didn't like it, I could just hit a return to default button and it would be ok. My problem is I can't find such a button. Can someone tell me the default text settings so I can get my nice, everything-fits-as-it-should display back? Thanks in advance. ~*Aimee

    I guess since you changed everything to 20 that makes the Apply button on the bottom right goes off the screen as shown below:

    Click image for larger version

    First click on Adjust Resolution and set your Monitor to highest Resolution. Then click Apply

    Next, In this case, you'll need to use the TAB key or SHIFT+TAB Key to get to the Apply key:
    1. TAB key will cycle through the options in forward direction
    2. SHIF+TAB key will cycle through the options in backward direction

    Having said that, let set Title bars to 12 then click TAB, the option will high lite Bold, TAB again will high lite the Apply button which you cannot see since it's off screen, hit ENTER key will apply the setting. You have to repeat the steps for Menus, Messages Box, Palettes icon etc...

    Good Luck !!!
