Technological assistance sought

Oh feckity feckity feck, I'm in trouble. Work had lent me a laptop as our PC is ancient and fairly crap. Being very foolish, I have allowed The Beautiful Children to use it. Now all the font has become absolutely massive, Eldest Beautiful Daughter has fiddled with it and put the font sizes setting to normal but it still remains massive.

Some of the little x s you click on to shut down (DO NOT FECKIN LAUGH AT MY TERMINOLOGY, I AM WAY TOO OLD TO HAVE LEARNED THIS) anyway, some of the little x's look like the colour has run on them like something has spilled on them.

If you can explain how to fix this in a way my addled brain can comprehend, please please help before I have to fess up to work.

I have been chosen to receive a lovely Busy Bee award from Tom Foolery, many thanks to you sweetie, but due to my complete technological ineptitude I can't show it. It will join my Rockin Girl award from Lisa Q and my Courageous Blogger award from Newfie in my little cyber drawer of nice things. It's not that I don't appreciate it, honest !

OK, click on START (bottom left corner) MY COMPUTER, CONTROL PANEL,FONTS, reset from here. If all else fails do what most IT sections tell you, rebot the fecking thing. Good luck :) TFX

Thank you kindly ladies.

TF I did what you said and I could only change the font type, I couldn't see a thing to change the size. My friend Edge is going to look at it for me, he is a very clever man, on Monday night he told me how to put capital letters in my texts !!!!! That really is how bad I am

I think you may have got the wrong end of the stick when I advised that I run a "lap surgery". No matter, bring it round and we'll see what can be tinkered with. By the way, I told the cabin crew about the caps thing/mile high excchange as you suggested and got a slap in the face for my trouble... wtf?
