    Text Is Bigger, please help


    Check this out. This is my problem:

    1. My desktop looks normal but the text of the icons are bigger for some reason. The resolution here is normal (1366 x 768).
    2. The same case in File Explorer. The texts have enlarged! "Change Only Text Size" didn't work and only the text of the window was affected.

      The ribbons are bigger too.
    3. The right click menu's texts are bigger. The one underlined in black is for comparison. THAT's what the size of my text window should be. Not the monstrosity it is currently in (underlined in red).
    4. Ridiculously LARGE right click menu... To drive the point.
    5. Microsoft Word. Just look at it!


    And the overall look of my laptop is absurd. I want it to get back to what it once was but I don't know what to do. Check out the screenshots please. I have used the word "bigger" to emphasize it enough. What am I supposed to do? I'm so lost...

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forums, try different Display drivers and see whether it helps, post your system specs.

    1.You can do a system restore:System Restore - How to Do in Windows 8
    2. You can install different drivers by going to Device manager:Downloading and installing drivers - Windows Help
    You need to fill the system specs for us to help you further as it's very difficult to suggest anything without knowing your system specs.
    Go to User CP (top right of this page)
    click Edit system spec under My settings (left pane).
