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...
