    1803 update made fonts look silly

    Just got updated to version 1803 and the appearance of windows and menus has changed quite dramatically.
    I have a Lenovo laptop with a high dpi display so have been using a display scale of 200% to make it readable. This has been fine in all previous versions of Windows but after the most recent update everything is "out of proportion". Previously, right-click menus, Title bars, windows contents were alll pretty consistent in size. Now the explorer windows, most right click menus etc. are comically large while control panel windows, browser and app windows are how they used to be. This includes the right-click menus over apps (between task view and hidden icons) so not all menus are borked.

    Somehow, the font also looks different with lines "squashed up". Display Scaling is the only adjustment available now so I don't know how to restore things to how they were.

    Screenshots for 100, 150, 200%:

    Did a system restore and the scaling is back to how it was before. But when I check the OS version it still says 1803. That's not what I expected from a restore. Anyhow, compare above screenshot of 200% and how it looks now:

    Icons are a decent size and text in windows better size/spacing and visually similar to control panel.
