This morning, when I turned on my computer, everything looked strangely huge. The icons were larger than normal, as well as the fonts. I right clicked on the desktop and saw the setting for the icons was small. What was going on?
About to panic and call Dell technical support, I decided to first do a restart. To my relief, everything returned to normal. Just in case a virus or adware had attacked, I ran Malware Bytes and the computer came out clean.
Apparently, somewhere along the line my mouse had stumbled into the wrong path and made the phenomenon happen. Not surprising, since that sort of thing bumbling happens quite often and I just click off what comes up and ignore it. Still, I was a bit concerned, wondering what had occurred. Had I hit some kind of shortcut key by mistake?
Since Google is my friend, I did a Google search. The solution was to right click on the mouse, choose resolution and make sure the resolution was at the highest setting. Well, I'd almost gotten it right by clicking the icons setting, but that would only have changed the icon appearance, not everything.
Somehow, going on my merry way, I'd changed the resolution setting and not paid attention. At least now I know what happened and how to fix it if it happens again.
What about you? Has anything strange happened with your computer, and how did you fix it?
