Right click your taskbar, click on Properties, then go to the Start Menu Tab, click on Customize for either Start Menu or Classic Start Menu, whichever you have selected.

IF you have Start Menu selected, the option should be at the top for Large or Small Icons.
If you have the Classic Start Menu selected, scroll down at the bottom until you see Show Small Icons in Start Menu and uncheck it.

Could be your monitor resolution too. Check that.

right click anywhere on the desktop and go down to properties. then click the settings tab and check the screen resolution, adjust that to whatever you like.
