Default PC's desktop just got jumbo.....

Not sure what I did but my pc's desktop was 10 x's the size it normally is making it impossible to see many folders. How do I change it back? Any help would be sweet. Getting to this site and a few others is the extent of my pc skills.

OS is Vista


Thanks,
Kevin

Hmmm

I don't know anything about Vista as I still use XP, but it would have to be something to do with the resolution probably.
Look in the Display options.

You running dual monitors or just one?

one monitor...tried rebooting several times. It is like the desktop is set for the blind or near blind.

So is it just your desktop or everything else as well?
Like browser windows etc.

in windows 7 there is an option to make everything 150% bigger might be same in vista
to get to it right click on desktop select screen resolution
then "make text and other items larger or smaller"
then select smaller 100%, and apply
