    HI If you can help that would be great! Started up the computer this
    morning and everything is enlarged - have tried to change screen
    resolution and it doesn't change my problem everything just gets
    distorted. Actual internet page views normally

    But Task Bar and Task Bar Icons are huge as well as all other bars!!!

    What can I do??

    Hello Bella,

    It may be your DPI settings. Double check to make sure that it is still
    set at the default of 96 DPI.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You might see if doing a '*_System_Restore_*'
    (http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/76905-system-restore-how.html) using
    a restore point dated before this happened may be able to fix this for
    you automatically.

    See if this will do it

    Desktop\Properties\Appearance\Advanced\Item and scroll down to Icon and reduce the
    size and Apply and then test. Repeat if necessary
