My computer froze up suddenly so I restarted it and when it started back up, all the icons on my desktop were enlarged and my icons were reset (I had them set in a specific way). My start bar is also huge and the font under my icons has changed as well. The only weird thing is that my internet browser is the right size. I've looked everywhere for a solution and when I right click the desktop and select "view", it says my desktop icons are at the medium setting and my screen resolution is also at the highest setting. Usually people have the problem of having EVERYTHING huge on their screen when it's just my icons and start bar that are huge.
