Windows 10 screen is too large

Original title: Normal Screen

How to I get my normal screen back? I evidently hit something and now my screen is much too large. It's windows 10. I thought it might be the magnifier, but I've turned it off and the screen is still too big. Can someone help me get it back to normal.
