Hello. I have a Satellite Toshiba laptop and as my daughter started pressing some buttons she changed the settings on the screen. When I go to my email or to some web pages the page and the letters look bigger and maybe of a different style, although my screen zoom level remains at 100% and then they are too small if I put the zoom at 75%. I tried to change the screen settings through the control panel but couldn't find something useful and then when I tried to restore the system to an older restore point so I can go back to my old settings it wasn't able to do it, even though I' ve tried different restore points (lovely windows!). Anyone has any ideas of what else I can do?
Thank you in advance!

Hold the control button and scroll up and down in a website to change the zoom level, it sounds like IE is just remembering the zoom level.

You're welcome! Maybe I wasn't clear, is this only a problem in internet explorer? If so, you can follow the instructions here to auto set the zoom to normal.
If not, then what version of windows is it so we can help you return the screen to normal.

Thank you for that. Can I ask one more question? Why windows are refusing to restore, which would have saved me alot of time and make things much easier...everytime I try System Restore it it says that there has been an error and couldn't restore the windows to the previous past point?!

Occasionally, the restore points can get corrupt. The fix is to turn System Restore off and then on again. Unfortunately, that removes all the previous restore points.
