Do you mean the icons are huge?
If so the screen resolution is set to low eg, 640 X 480
To change the screen resoultion go to and click on Start - Control Panel - Display - Settings tab and move the slider on the Screen resolution to the right until 1024 by 768 then click OK
If this is not suitable change the Screen resolution higher or lower to suit your requirements.

What else can I try to reset Windows 8.1 desktop from 500% back to 100%-Text too big to see?


I would use a HIGHER resolution, as this will show things in a finer perspective. The two most likely maximum resolutions on your PC are 1366x768 or 1920x1080

Screen larger


That's because your game changed the resolution of your screen, to correct this, right click on any empty spot on your desktop and select properties, then go to the last seccion which is Display options there's a bar there move it to the right and click apply to see if that's your desired resolution, if it goes to small move to the left, to big move to the right then click accept, you should get warning asking you to keep the resolution click yes and you're done.

Everything is too big


Sounds like the screen resolution has been changed. Right click on the desktop goto Properties -> Settings and slide the Screen Resolution slider to 1024 x 768 then click on Apply. If that works you should see all your icons as you did before, The resolution can be adjusted higher if its more suitable for you. Most 17inch laptops work between 1024 x 768 and 1152 x 864. If that doesn't work let us know! :)
