font of power bi desktop is too small to read

All the fields, options, everything that has nothing to do with the actual report window is too small.  i can barely read it even 3 inches away from the screen.  it's unusable. this is a brand new download i did today... what happened?

@v-roxlit That is kind of small...

 

Is this windows 10? what's the scaling level?

1. What's your screen resolution? What's the DPI settings?

2. Can you take a screenshot?

I'm at 1920x1080.  When I use Desktop on a server where I normally work, it appears fine.  You can see it compared to 8pt font: Capture.PNG

well it was 125%.  I changed it to 200% and then everything was laughably big.  so i changed it back to 125%, opened Desktop and it was fixed, back to normal.  thanks!
