Windows 7: Changed settings changed everything

Changed settings changed everything

As usually, I was trying to change some settings to make larger/darker text and better color. I kept messing with all of that. Every time you click it takes you to another adjustment. Now I don't know what all I changed,but ll of my application are changed and ugly.

My Google search screen no longer has a search button. Just says click enter.
My Yahoo mail is all spread out and pale
My EBAY has small printing and formatting is different

UGH

Do you know what the default font name and size would have been? Maybe if I put it back.

I agree with oscer1, a restore point would be my first choice.

Read this tutorial by Brink. It should give you the guidance if needed.

Changed settings, changed everything

What a great idea you guys. Scary though. I've spent hours trying to change things back. What a waste of time. I just hope the restore won't make me lose the auctions I've posted on EBAY. Oh well, A small price to pay......hahaha.

Here goes. I will post after.

Restore Points only changes the computer it's use on and nothing else. What is on the web stay on the web.
