Windows 7: Large desktop button... what's up with that?

Large desktop button... what's up with that?

Just a quick question about the desktop button on Windows 7, for some reason its size increase this week, it's about twice as large now. I know it's a bit silly but it does bother me... and I'd like it back the way it was. I didn't install anything special, I don't use any desktop customizer and I can't find any options to modify that so I'm not sure exactly how it happened, I just noticed one day it was larger.



Do anyone know how to fix that?

Thanks in advance,
-Roxy

[EDIT]

Resolution:
Stopping the Tablet PC Input service fixed the issue. Thanks redsoxm16

Hello,

Try changing your resolution to something different and then back to normal again

EDIT: If that doesn't work try going to the start menu and typing in 'services' > Click on services and look for the tablet PC input service > Then right click it, and select properties > Set the startup type to 'disabled'

Thanks for the quick reply! I just tried, still the same. Rebooting my laptop when it was updated the other day also didn't fixed it... it's stuck this way and i don't understand why. Do you have any other idea?
