Is every thing else larger than normal?

If so right click on your desktop and select properties, settings.

Now increase your Display Area, this will make your loggin box's smaller.  But it will also make every thing else smaller.    

I hope this is of some help. :)

The logon screen uses the "Default" user profile settings.  To change them, start up Windows and CANCEL when the logon screen comes up.  This "logs" you on as the "Default" user.  Change your display resolution to match what you have after you do log on (control panel, display).  Now exit and restart Windows.  When it restarts, your logon screen should be back to "normal"
