NetBeans 8.2 worked fine last Friday.
But when I started NetBeans 8.2 today, the font was very large (about twice the normal size), with the welcome screen being clipped due to the large font size.

All the NetBeans windowing fonts are affected. This includes the projects list, the Navigator members, the search field, the tabs for open files, and the "<default config>" text.
The editing window is fine.

I searched for the problem, but nothing I found helped.

I went to Tools/Options/Fonts&Colors
The Default font shows as Monospaced 21.
I tried making the Default font 12, did an "Apply" then "Ok". Nothing changed.
I tried restarting NetBeans, it didn't help.
The font shows as 12 in the menu, but the font is still 21 points.
All the other categories show "Inherited", so I didn't try changing them.

I tried another font: Courier New 10, that didn't change anything.
It may have changed the main editor font, but none of the other fonts.
I tried restarting NetBeans again, it didn't help.

I tried running my old NetBeans 8.1, it has the same issue.

I tried editing netbeans.conf in C:\Program Files\NetBeans 8.2\etc
to add --fontsize=12
This was a suggestion on SlashDot, but it looks to me like it may be for an earlier version of NetBeans.
But even with Netbeans shutdown, I was unable to save the file.

Any suggestions?
