My PC rebooted for windows updates, and then my screen got zoomed in some places, but also zoomed out in other places.

Please see the attached image ("desktop") - the icons on the desktop are huge, but the taskbar icons got smaller. on the other hand, the date & time etc font got bigger.


How to solve? my screen resolution is the recommended resolution. I tried to played with it (and also with the "Display" slide bar), but it only makes things bigger.

  1. For desktop icons: Right click the desktop >> select the view option >> then select small icons.
  2. click on desktop then whilst pressing ctrl, scroll the mouse wheel up or down to resize desktop icons.
  • For Taskbar: Right click the start menu >> select properties >> under the Taskbar tab check the box "uncheck use small icons"

Hopefully this is what you are referring to.


If this not works try a system restore to previous of windows update. If you choose restore please post a screen shot of system restore option.
