    Do an icon cache rebuild. Use this tutorial :

    Use Option One. It's easiest.

    You can also fix that by doing a system restore. Pick a date BEFORE your friend messed with your keyboard as the restore point.

    I am not sure what do you mean.

    Are you saying the icons/shortcuts are too large ?

    Assuming that is what you meant ......

    Right click at an open spot of your desktop > click View > select Medium or Small.
