    The text doesn't fit on one line...

    Did you increased the font size?
    Advanced Appearance Settings - Change Text Size for Items in Windows 8

    Does the same issue happens with another theme?
    See something like AeroLite.

    Check for default font size, that might be it. Otherwise update the graphics drivers just to make sure.
