    Change size of minimize, maximize and close buttons


    Hello guys,

    Somehow,the size of close, max and min buttons on windows are somehow changed. The size of the buttons is somehow increased and I don-t know how to decrease or reset it to the default ones.
    The OS on the computer is windows 8.
    I have found an instruction but it is applicable only on windows 7.

    I do not use this computer and owner claims he didn't do anything to change it.
    Can you help me restore this to default size?

    Thank you.

    If you go to Control Panel -> Display, look at the lower half of the window. What is the text size of the title bars? It should be "11"
