Question about Computers & Internet
If you want to revert them back you can either just undo what you did or just do a system restore on your computer. I would take it that you are on XP.
1. Click start then run then type in MSCONFIG
2. Click on lauch system restore.
3. Restore to a point before you changed the dpi
4. Take note that if you restore to a specific date anything that you installed after that specific date till the present will be lost and you have to install them again but files will not be lost.
I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply. Thanks.

First, right click on your desktop and click on Personalize. Alternatively, you can go to Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Personalization.
In the Personalization window, go to the left pane and click on Adjust font size (DPI).
If UAC is turned on you will need to make an additional confirmation so that the DPI Scaling window will launch. You can choose the default scale of 96 DPI or a larger one of 120 DPI, which makes the text more readable. If these two options are not enough you can click on the Custom DPI button and choose another size (DPI).
In the Custom DPI Setting window you can select the desired percentage for the DPI increase. You have the following options: 100% for the normal size of 96 DPI, 125% for 120 DPI, 150% for 144 DPI and 200% for 192 DPI.
If you set the DPI higher than 96, and you are running Windows Aero, the text and other items on the screen might appear blurry in some programs that are not designed for high-DPI display in Windows Vista. You can avoid this issue by using Windows XP style DPI scaling. Just check the appropriate option and press on OK.
The change can be applied only after a system restart. Close all the running applications, save your open documents and then press on Restart Now. After a reboot, the font size will be changed.
