Things got small! :(

All of my stuff on Windows 7 shrunk ever since the update last night.

Notice in the picture how my background doesn't fit the screen anymore and this java applet is much smaller than it used to be. What do I do? :s

Right click on the desktop to get drop down list. Select screen resolution and see if you can change it from there

Try selecting a different Theme (Right click desktop, Personalize). If that fixes the problem then you can put back what you have now, see if it works.

Just noticed, this is the 2nd thread you've started for the same problem, also here: Windows 7 Shrunk! :(

Please stay with one thread for one problem, less confusing that way.

Alright I tell you exactly what is going on! What happened is, you installed drivers for your graphics card or your monitor so now it is running at the native resolution of your monitor which happens to be 1280x1024. I am guessing you were running the computer at a resolution of 1024x768 or there about.

Yeah I switched over to Linux to test so I don't think its an operating system problem. You guys are prob right about the graphics card thing can you help me fix it?
