Fonts have got very small

I adjusted my display colours an desktop background today through Personalization and now the fonts in here and other features like the speckie spell check are very small. If I increase to 125% the fonts are way too large, and I don't know what I have done to make it so.

Any ideas please?

John, try holding the Shift button and scrolling the mouse wheel until the font size looks good, see if that affects speckie as well. I imagine a system restore would get you back to normal as well. What you might have done I am unsure. A Guy

Thanks Bill Yes mate I can't for the life of me think I did anything out of the ordinary while adjusting the colours

A system restore has sort of got it back though the font as I type are still a bit on the small side but not the end of the world.

The other suggestion actually flicks me between the reply window and the post window vis a vis your reply and my Submit Reply window - scroll back to the reply and forward to your response.

Only thing is if you do that you need to copy your reply before you flick back to what you are answering. Is going to be a handy feature as I am always wanting to check something (like system specs) in the incoming while I type a response.

click the magnifiing glass see the options box and select views then lens.
just click the x to close it,
you can make it smaller when magnifier is open in full screen by holding win key and -

Sorry, it was late and I am sick (in the head). I meant the Ctrl and the mouse wheel

May have found the problem - it is in Windows Color and Appearance - just needs some tweaking around in there.

How I did it just put it down to too much gung ho and not enough attention
