Can't reduce large text/menu size in windows 8.1

    Can't reduce large text/menu size in windows 8.1


    I'm not sure what I've done but all of the text in the menu items is all appearing very large. I presume I've done this using a short cut some how. I've attempted all of the obvious solutions in display settings to no avail. Below is an example of how the menu looks in Excel.

    I'm sure it's a simple one but any help appreciated.
