Small Font(again).

Vista Home SP3
2GB Ram,160 HD.
Several Days ago,everytime I clicked to open a page,it would open with the page minimized.So,i used the trick of going into Properties,clicking on maximized,stretching the page out full manually,then click out.Didn't work.But the troubling part was:even when I would maximize the page,all the words on the page,and even the cursor was TINY.Even if I changed the page,that page would also have tiny print & cursor.Well,I did a system restore,and everything was back to normal.UNTIL,a few days later the very same thing I described above started again.Even the startup page had a very small box to click on to sign in,and even the icons were half size at best.Any ideas from anyone would be greatly appreciated.Sorry so long.Thanks,chucker.

If you have a mouse that has a scroller, hold the ctrl button, then scroll up for larger font, and scroll down for smaller font.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
