Font, Display looks weird after Computer guy changed something.

So i went to my dad's friend so that he could fixed my laptop but he changed a few things now the display looks different and the laptop style is different or w/e.


So if i click a folder it only takes 1 click to open it before it usually takes double click.

Mine looks like this before

but now the guy changed it look like this http://puu.sh/2P1Na.png

and the folders like mincrat, game of thrones used to have pictures inside the folder but now it just looks empty like this: http://puu.sh/2P1R8.jpg

also the youtube font is also changed how do i change this please!

and when i minimize the chrome browser it changes to a invisible thing with black border but when i stop moving it goes back to the browser, but before when i move it it looks like im looking at youtube etc.

and in the folder the video has no video thumbnails it just looks like windows xp and windos 7 combined, before it looked like windows 7 with good graphics

For the mouse you need to set it for a double-click look at this tutorial will show you how, it says it's for Vista but it also works for Windows 7 Single Click option

This tutorial will show you how to turn on thumbnails so you can see what's in a folder Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

Look at Option 1 of this tutorial Show Window Contents or Outline While Dragging and see if that helps with the invisible window.
