How to change default zoom in Display

I just installed Windows and Windows made the default zoom for text and other objects to 125%. Is it possible to change the default back to 100%?

Your screenshot shows the 100% being selected and Apply button greyd out, not functioning. This means that you have already 100% selected and in use; the Apply button is visible and functioning only when when you change a value, not visible and functioning when the selected value (in this case 100%) is already set.

My screenshot shows the system default is 125% but I set it to 100%. I want to change the default to 100%. The system has 125% as the default not 100%.

You totally lost me now. Your screenshot shows profoundly, absolutely clear that your display is set to 100%. I do not understand what is the problem.

I believe he is refering to the default in brackets next to 125%

The 125% default is what Widows 7 recommends. You don't have to use it if you don't want to.
You have chosen 100% and Windows 7 will honor that choice and use that choice.
You are worried about the word default. Forget about it and be happy.
