Start screen, desktop and everything else suddenly too large

Between shutting down last night and starting up this morning, the Start page has greatly increased in size. Desktop icons, background picture, taskbar icons - all same thing. I had my desktop icons set out in my order of preference, but they have also been re-arranged as well as re-sized.

I'm using Windows 8.1 with 24in LG monitor.

I'd appreciate any ideas as to the cause of this, and help with restoring things to the way they were.

Sounds like when you are in Safe Mode and Screen Res goes to basic (driver)

If you're not in Safe Mode, have a look in: Display > Screen Resolution to see what's set.

Thank you lotvic. Powering up just now, to see if there were any replies to my post, behold - everything has reverted to its former state!

Don't know why or how!

I'll bear in mind what you've said, in case things go awry again!
