    How do I undo Custom Sizing from 500%


    Hi I increased the custom sizing to 500 and now I can't undo it, and I can't do anything at all actually. I do not have a system restore point either, my Windows 8 doesn't let me for some reason... this is a serious glitch I cannot believe there is nothing to prevent this.

    EDIT: I did have a system restore, got to it by holding Shift when selecting restart. I was nervous about using it but it said none of my documents would be erased so I guess it worked out. Microsoft owes me a tablet!!! Seriously though, quit making new products until you can actually build one that works properly. If I were an old man with technophobia or something this would have cost me a lot of money.

    Nah that's for something different my issue is with the text size being to large, even if that did work I couldn't select it because everything is so large I can't select anything.

    Boot into the safe mode and try option 3.

    Could you tell me how to do that please? Apparently it's more complicated in Windows 8

    When you boot up your machine, hit F8 on your keyboard.

    Tried that, nothing. I held it and I pressed it nothing happened.

    I'm reading the official Windows guide to go into Safe Mode but at step two it says "Under PC setting, tap or click General" But there is no general button

    Hello, again.
    You may have to constantly tap F8. Try it a few times, as it's kinda tricky on some machines.

    Hold down the Ctrl key then scroll the mouse wheel. One way makes stuff bigger, the other way makes it smaller.
