    And one other thing to try.

    I've noticed the icons on the desktop look more spaced than normal, suggests the display scaling has been altered, possibly when used with an external monitor or TV.

    Win-Key-I to bring up the settings
    Go to display and then scale and check the setting, try putting it to 100% if it isn't already.

    Ok, so have you done the Windows repair tasks?

    Win-Key-R

    type cmd in the box then press crtl-shift-enter to run it as administrator

    then type these commands followed by a reboot as described in an earlier post

    sfc /scannow 
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth 
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth 
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-image /RestoreHealth
    Its says need to be administrator. Sure it is on the admin account

    150% says (recommended) next to it and that's what it's on. Changed to 100% and just made everything smaller.

    Ctrl-shift-enter when running cmd from the run prompt will run it as administrator.

    I'm out of suggestions now, other than rolling back to a restore point prior to when it broke.
