Default App Minimizer Issue - 02-04-2011, 11:10 PM

Hello all!
Not sure if you're familiar with the Photo Booth App Minimizer that makes any application 80% the original size. However, the other day I must have done something (I'm not sure exactly what), but now every time I power on my dell mini, I boot into SL and everything is 80% the original size. The Finder Bar, every application I open, every window is smaller (80% original size). I can't make the resolution the way it used to be. Has anyone encountered this, or is there a command I can enter to bring everything back to normal? Thanks in advance!

sounds like the script quit before resetting to 100%

to fix this:

open a terminal window ( Applications/ Utilities / Terminal)

type the following and press enter:

defaults write -g AppleDisplayScaleFactor 1.0

reboot.

cheers.

No problem...
