How can I reset my system settings

Question

In an attempt to get larger images in my Outlook Express I changed to a lower resolution by right clicking on a blank area of desktop, then clicking on properties and then clicking on the settings tab. I applied this new setting by clicking on the OK button and now have larger images. In fact the images are so large that I cannot get to the bottom of the screen where the OK button is in order to change to a higher resolution. I have dragged the dialog box as high as possible on my monitor screen, but it still does not reveal the OK button at the bottom. I have the same problem when trying to print anything i.e. after clicking "file" and "print" I get the "print" dialog box, but cannot get to the bottom of the box to click on "print"
