Computer display...

a couple months ago, windows 10 showed up on my computer, without me asking for it...
but there didn't seem to be any problem with it, except I cant figure out how to load pics from my droid phone...

but yesterday, the size changed...I usually had it set on 125%...now I have to turn it to 75%, and even then, something doesn't look right...

and the header stays at the larger size...

I tried windows update, but said I was updated...

help...!

When I plug my Galaxy into my computer, a choice appears in it's notification bar. It usually says USB charging. If you press that it should give you other options, one of which is photo transfer.

one problem solved...Thanx Luke...didn't realize I had to do something on the phone besides plug it in the USB...

now the big problem...size of everything...

on the desktop, the picture didn't change, but all the icons are three or four times bigger...
and the header is too...

When you reset the size, did you do it my right clicking on your desktop, then selecting "Display Settings"?

Changing the font and icon size may not affect the size of pictures outside of icons. I'm still going through 10 currently, so I don't know all of the ins and outs yet.

Try holding the Ctrl key down and pressing zero. That should reset the size

it changed back again the other day...I tried the CTL>0, and it helped, but some stuff not so much...one thing I notice is my pic on the desktop is as wide, but have 2" black space at top & bottom...makes the pic look a little out of dimension...

after playing around with settings, and although not back to where it was, I was able to live with it...

and then today, when I get home from work...

NO MOUSE

so, after a few hours of looking up stuff on my phone, and not able to do, or get to where they said, I finally got to a system restore, without losing any pictures...

I still have windows 10, but everything looks back to normal, although I have to call my cable company to resetup my email, and download Adobe, etc, etc, etc...

and I have my mouse back...
