Display Size, icon became small, everything else same

Hi guys,
I've got a really annoying problem here. I know that there are three presets of the display size, small, medium large. I always use medium and it has work fine ever since.
But suddenly, the icons on the my desktop became tiny, i can't really tell if the title of the icons became smaller but the icons are definitely smaller. Everything else is the same size, and i checked my settings and they were still set at medium.
Anyhelp please?

FIrst, right click on the Desktop and select Screen Resolution. Make sure that is correct for your display.

If okay, then click on an empty area of the Desktop, then hold down the Ctrl key and roll the mouse wheel. One direction makes things smaller, the other makes them bigger.

That will allow you to make them any size you want.
