  1. folders won't open on desktop.


    File folders on the desktop won't open. They seem to try to open then go to the taskbar where I can barely see them and cannot open them. The same issue is with file explorer and recycle. They won't open either but again seem to try to open then go to the task bar where I can barely see them and cannot open the. I have run indexing twice twicw with the delte feature. If I change the display setting to 125% everything works like normal.But the size make using them not very helpful. Ex. whith the browser open I cannot see parts or the sides and top/bottom. Any idea what may be wrong?

    :)
