Hello Obetdoie, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to boot into Safe Mode to be able to see this normally again, then change whatever setting you made back to undo it for when you start Windows 7 back in normal mode next.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Do you remember what setting you changed before this happened in the Window Appearance and Color window?

If not, then you could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before you made this change by mistake to undo it.

A system restore, if using the one like in the tutorial below and not a factory restore, does not affect files and folders in your user folders.

System Restore

If it was a resolution issue, it would also affect the size of everything in Windows 7 including the size of the windows and not just the text.

What happened with the system restore?

What brand and model is your computer? I'll post back with how to do a factory recovery for it.

Be sure to backup anything that you do not want to lose first though.
