MS Office Menu Items and Ribbon Large

Suddenly my Office Startup Page and Ribbon and Menu fonts are huge.

 

It takes up about 25% of the screen.

 

I'm using a Lenovo Yoga Pro II.

 

Any ideas why?

 

Thanks.

Re: MS Office Menu Items and Ribbon Large

Have you used an external monitor, lately? On mine, Windows often sticks with the resolution of the monitor when I go back to the laptop and a lot of things look weird. Reboot usually solves that. 

 

Also check your scaling settings in Settings > System > Display. Even if it's where you set it, change it to something else, reboot, change it back, reboot. 

 

There might also be a ribbon setting in Word. I'll have to look later if the above fails to fix it.

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I had not used an external monitor. It just happened, maybe after a Windows update?

 

Reboot didn't fix it, but when I left the meeting, I powered it down.

 

Then, this morning, I turned it on and it's fixed. It gave a couple flashes like a PC does when it discovers a new monitor. It's working great now.

 

Thanks, Doc, for your suggestions.

You're most welcome. 

 

Another possibility I forgot to include: videos. If it happens, again, think back to the most recent video you either watched or played (whether intentionally or not.. like an ad).
