I turned my computer on this morning and everything was very small. The font, start menu, icons, everything, and now it is very hard to read. How do I change it back to a normal size. I tried playing with the display properties in the control panel but I can't figure it out. Please help ASAP. Thank you

Well you went to the proper controls --- display properties. Basically, the higher you turn up the 'screen resolution' (slider to the right), the smaller everything will be on the screen. Conversely, sliding it to the left
reduces the resolution and makes everything appear bigger on the screen. For a 15-inch monitor, a res setting of 800 x 600 is usually ok, for a 17-inch you can increase it to 1024 x768 which should look okay. In fact, I manage it even higher (1152 x 864) on my 17-inch to give me that bit more working space.
