    Win 10 desktop icon and general screen sizes constantly changing


    I have four PCs on my network and the best by far is a Sony 23-inch all-in-one. However, recently desktop icons and text on this PC have started to constantly change from 100% to a low of 75% or a high of 200%. I suspect Sony is to blame, or at least partially, since a popup showing a magnifying glass sometimes shows when icons are changing size. Fixing the size temporarily is easy but I am wondering why this annoying situation has escalated recently. Strange beeps also accompany this annoyance. The last major Win 10 update possibly reawakened a sleeping pest.

    Two Toshiba 23-inch all-in-ones and a 15-inch Medion laptop are working properly.

    I did have this sort of thing occurring some time ago with the Sony machine but fixed it by turning off the touchscreen after I had read that someone with a Sony laptop had stopped beeps and changed screen sizes by abandoning the touchscreen. Unfortunately I am now struggling to work out how to turn the touchscreen back on and then off again.

    .Any Sony PC users also having this issue? Sony support has disappeared, of course.

    :)

    The win 10 desktop has square apps and shortcuts to various programing. The win 7 icons. I would like to try using the original win 10 desktop, but though I can get it by hitting the windows key, it boots and constantly defaults to the win 7 desktop.
    When I upgraded to win 10, I did something change it to the win 7 desktop, but do not know how to change it back.

    Win 10 desktop icon and general screen sizes constantly changing

    I have restored 100% display by deleting the nextwindow voltron touch screen driver. This seems to have done the trick.
