Action Bars Small

Hello there, For some reason I had this theme. It was nice, But I wanted to reverse
back to the default theme. But now my action bar is like small. I liked the old one,
Here's a screenshot: http://puu.sh/11DRs

Hello Nucca and welcome

Firstly run this to reset all your system files that the theme may have altered back to default. Run up to 3 times with reboots between or until it reports "No Integrity Violations" - SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Then right click the desktop/Personalize and select one of the windows 7 default Aero themes.

Right after all that, It says nothing is wrong with it. Then I re-booted just to be sure.
It was alright for like 3 minutes, Then it just switches back to the small one. And it's currently on 21.

Just try increasing it from 21 to a size that suits you. 21 is the default size, and from your image it looks about right to be honest. Have you selected one of the Default themes and not one you may have saved.

How did you change the background, did you just choose one of your saved themes, if so those will be saved with the smaller caption buttons.

Choose the default Aero theme then right click the desktop/Personalize/Desktop Background and choose your background. What happens then.

All the themes you have saved under "My Themes" since installing the custom theme will likely contain additions from your custom installed theme so are now likely no good to you.

I didn't click any of my old themes, Just clicked "Personalize" > "Desktop Background".

Just for comparison this is my custom size 17

And the default 21

Doesn't look much different to yours apart from the width
