    Icons in windows vista became large

    I am a windows vista user. Normally,i use my computer for gaming purpose. Last night when i completed a game,i was surprised to see that the size of icons were much larger than ever. It was somewhat nearer to double. I am trying to change it back to the normal size but not able to do that.Do you know,how to accomplish this task?

    You should do a system Restore either through normal mode or through the safe Mode. If you don't know, how to open your computer in safe mode then restart your computer and keep pressing F8 regularly before the appearence of windows logo. You will see a list of startup where you should choose Safe Mode option. Now after logging into windows with safe mode,you need to restore your computer. For doing the same,navigate to Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc.It should fix your issue. However if it fails then right click on desktop,choose view. Finally use classic icons.
