    How do I reset the default window size?


    I'm not sure what i did but my windows are giant now.

    In windows xp to expand the brushes in paint you hold down the Fn key and hit the + key until the brushes are as big as you need them to be. When I tried this in windows 8 it just expanded my windows now I'm trying to get them back to the normal size. anybody know how I fix it?

    You can see how big MS word toolbar is here in this image.

    This fixed my issue as well. Just use the change size of all items and make everything big. sign out and back in then reset everything to the normal size and it'll all go back regular the size.
