    Is this just the font size within a web browser window? If so, you either held down the control key while scrolling with a scroll wheel/trackpad (which in at least some browsers changes the font size) or hit command-+ .

    In either case, you can just close the window and open a new one. Command - (that is, command and the minus key) will also reduce font size.

    If you've actually zoomed in on a portion of the screen at the system level, that's a feature designed for people who don't see well. It can be turned off in System Preferences -> Universal Access (it's called "Zoom" there).
