    It's somewhere in the context menu when you right click the desktop, or you
    can hold down Ctrl and use the mousewheel.

    Hi Erison,

    You might check to see if your DPI settings was increased,

    DPI Scaling

    and if your Screen Resolution was decreased.

    Screen Resolution

    Hope this helps,

    It sounds like the Screen Resolution was changed to a lower resoulution.
    Right click the Desktop and select Personalize from the menu. On the
    following screen, select Display Settings.

    In the dialog box, set the Resolution to a slightly higher value. Apply/OK.
