i changed the font size to 400 percent in lightroom and now it's so big I can't access the menu to take it back to normal. Can anyone help?
I did exactly what you said and this is what happened. I tried several times. I appreciate you trying to help me. Lana
First, click the shortcut to launch Lightroom.
Then, immediately press and hold Alt + Shift until the the Reset preferences dialog appears.
I followed your instructions but the reset preferences dialogue does not come up. This is a screen shot of my entire screen. As you can see at 400 per cent I can't access any way to move it. Any more suggestions? Lana
The instructions I posted are for Lightroom Classic, but I see now that you are using Lightroom CC, so I'll get a moderator to move this thread to the Lightroom CC forum, where you're likely to get better help.
Lightroom CC provides the same method for resetting its preferences. Follow these steps:
1. Do the menu command Help > System Info to verify you're running LR CC 1.5 (the latest version). If you have an earlier version, do Help > Updates. After the update, do Help > System Info again to verify you're on LR CC 1.5.
2. While holding down Alt and Shift, click on the shortcut you use for starting LR CC. You should see a dialog asking if you want to reset its preferences. See this screen recording for an example:
3. If you still can't get that to work, exit LR CC. In File Explorer, enter this folder path:
(Substitute your username for your-username.)
Then delete the file "Lightroom CC Preferences.agprefs". Restart LR CC.
None of the suggestions worked so I ended up having to uninstall Lightroom CC. I certainly appreciate everyone who tried to help me. Thank you again.
To help others, were you able to get the reset-preferences dialog to open in step 2?
I encountered the same problem and THis (reset via alt shift) worked for me. Thanks.
So far this also appears to be the only option for Lightroom Classic as well.
Why not put a scroll in all the dialogue boxes?
Actually it was my windows task bar hiding the Restart Lightroom button. My moving the task bar I was able to restart Lightroom and thus reset the font size down to Medium.

I know this post is at least 5 years old, but THANK YOU for asking this question! I had the exact same problem happen to me, and after a morning of difficulty with Lightroom was ready to chuck my computer out the window. Johnrellis reply with link to the Lightroom Queen worked for me.
