Started my computer today and everything on my screen is huge. The icons on the desktop are large, the bars are large, and when I start any program, everything in it is large, so that very little fits in the screen.

Have gone to "Appearances and Themes"; the DPI size is still "normal," but when I click on "custom DPI setting" the ruler is also large, so that even when the "percentage of normal size" is at 100%, the 1-inch on that ruler is more like 1.5 inches on a real (physical) ruler. How can I get it back to the real normal? I've rebooted a few times but no change.

Have done all that - everything is set to "normal" and nothing "large" is selected.
