    Forgot to say that the desktop icons are normal. only the icons that normally
    are small (like the ones in the taskbar) have changed size.

    With the Classic Start Menu...
    Right click the Start button | Properties |
    Start Menu tab | Customize button |
    Check: ? Show small icons in Start Menu |
    OK |Apply | OK

    [[Reduces the size of the icons in the Start menu. ]]
