recompile on widescreen laptop messed up fonts?

I have recently inherited a vb.net desktop application that has a font
problem. The previous developer says he compiled the application one time on
a laptop with a widescreen. Since that compile all of the text in the
application (labels, text in textboxes, text in dropdowns, etc.) is of a
much smaller font. Its like something globally changed the font settings.

I've never seen anything like this. Does anyone have any idea of how to
change the font size globally?
