Somehow the desktop icons on my Surface Pro (original) got very large. I mean HUGE. I'm running Windows 8.1. How do I get it back to normal?

Right click on your desktop click on the top item (View) and adjust your settings from there.

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel on it then you can left click anywhere on the desktop and then: - Keep a finger pressed on the 'Control' key whilst scrolling backwards (to make the icons smaller) on the mouse wheel. Scrolling forward increases the icon size. When they are correctly sized just stop scrolling.
