    How can the size of font in my Windows PC be changed after desktop error?

    While I was trying to change the size of icons on the desktop I accidentally changed the font size. Now the font appears tiny in all my applications including email. I tried for restore option but the system is showing desktop error. How can I change the font size back to normal?

    To set Font size in windows do the following :

    Click Start--control panel--Appearance and personalization--adjust screen resolution,
    here three options will be visible, Smaller, Medium , Larger. select any one of your choice ,

    Click Apply.

    If you can't set the font size using this settings,

    You may contemplate a System Restore, for that go to start--all progams--accessories--system tools--system restore, provide a previous date as restore point and windows will be back to that date and there will be no issue relating to fonts.
