How to change icons, windows and font size?

I turned off my computer and everything was OK. When I turned it on, the icons, the font, the windows, and everything was extremely big. I went to the DPI setting and it says it's on the default size but it's not. How can I get everything back to normal?

I have windows vista.

 It sounds as if your screen resolution got changed somehow. Right-click an empty area of your desktop, click Personalize>Display Settings. See the resolution slider? What is it set at? Try changing it and then click 'Apply'.
