    A question about controlling sizes of things...


    Recently for some unknown reason, everything changed size as far as icons, text and app sizes. The overall text in my Mozilla Thunderbird app got smaller. Everything in Photoshop changed. Most of all the text sizes changed everywhere.

    I have tried different settings in different places but it only works for some things and some things got worse.

    It seems that there are so many ways to change things but I cannot make sense of what does what anymore so would somebody explain to me how to get these things back to normal.

    To start with make sure you have the settings correct for Display > Scale and Layout. Set this to the recommended 100%

    Also make sure your Display resolution is set to the Recommended setting too.

    After this you need to check in the various apps that you have the Zoom setting at 100%.

    This will set the baseline from which you can make adjustments if the default size is not quite to your liking.

    Hope this helps!

    Thank you for your information. I will check all of those settings. I have also discovered that some apps have their own settings.
