    The display on the Mac computer at my work has been changed so that all the icons are very tiny, the fonts are very large, and when I move the mouse, the entire screen moves so that most of the time a part of the screen is hidden and I have to jiggle the mouse around to read everything - I'm not scrolling, it just automatically does it without me clicking. I am not really familiar with Macs but I do know how to get to system preferences, and I can't think what option might make the screen do that. It really makes the computer harder to use - does anyone know what it is? I also didn't see where I could make the icons bigger or smaller ,it doesn't seem like the Desktop/Display really does it . Thanks in advance!!

    Sounds like several issues.

    First, go to System Preferences, Universal Access, and turn off Zoom. That will get rid of the most annoying issue first. Then, click on the desktop and press Command-J on the keyboard, which will present you with your view options, and set the icon size however you prefer it. The large text is likely because of the zoom, but if not, back to System Preferences, then Appearance.
