Default Computer Help

I have a computer question. My son somehow made all of the icons and screens appear much larger than normal and I can't figure out how to get them back to the normal size. Any ideas?

In advance, thanks!

If you are running Windows XP--right click on the screen, click PROPERTIES, go to APPEARANCE tab at top, click ADVANCED--

Scroll down where it says ITEM until you get to ICON--choose the SIZE you want them to be. You can also in this screen change the FONT.

As for the screen size it may just be that you have click the MAXIMIZE tab on the top right of the window--it is the one in the middle.

ill bet he changed the "screen resolution"..if u can...go to "control panel"..."display" ..and the "settings".....and change your screen resolution ...you likely have a different set of choices to get to "settings" for your "display" as all the different versions of windows seem to do the same thing different ways..good luck...my son was the same way..he drove me nuts doing things he didnt understand but NOW this kids a full blown computer geek and if he would only cooperate..he can be very helpful..lol
