My 7yr old was playing games and did something to the computer. I now have to scroll left and right and up and down to get to destop documents, tool bar at the top and dock on the bottom. The desktop picture has not been zoomed in. That was my first thought. Any help would be greatly appricated!

Thank You in advance!

My Zoom has always been on.
Try Option Command - to zoom out until it won't zoom any more. That should get your Desktop back to normal.

Or hold down the option and command keys, then toggle the 8 key.
