Trying to enlarge fonts on my in laws computer I set it to 200% and rebooted the system. Now it is way too big I can't even see all the options anymore. I can't get to control panel or display to change the settings back.
How can I fix this problem? Undo the changes? Keep in mind I have very limited access now it is so large that most of my options aren't displayed anymore.

Thanks

Can you boot into safemode or use Last Known Good Configuration?

I don't know how to do the above. Fairly new at all this. If you could tell me how to do that I will try anything.

Try hit Windows Key + R, this should get you to the run menu. Type control.exe and this will get you to the control panel. Don't know how much will block your view though.

Restart the machine and gently tap the F8 key every second or so just before windows begins to load.  Then the options for safe mode will appear.
