My DW was updating something and suddenly everything on screen is for like the sight impaired. How do I normal-size it again?

If you are using Internet Explorer you can change the text size by clicking on View and then Text size and click on one of the sizes available.

Hope this helps

Is it just font size or is it icons, too?

First bring up the properties page for your display. Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and click on properties (or click on start, control panel, display).

If it is icons and fonts that are super sized, click on the settings tab and choose a resolution that is good for you.

If it is just the font size click on the appearance tab. Choose a font size that is good for you.

You can also hold down the Control key and use the scroll wheel on your mouse to change font size from teeny-tiny to enormous, and everything in between.
