Try going to your display properties (right click on desktop) and setting both 'themes' and 'appearance' to Windows Classic ...

I can't take a screenshot as I cannot see anything in the new window that pops up.I cannot adjust the display properties either as I cannot see the new window. i can only see icons.

Use F8 when loading windows to boot Safe Mode with VGA support. Hopefully, this may make a difference in the display allowing you to make adjustments ...

Since you can't see anything...download the vbscript that I attached and run it. It will change your theme back to windows classic and hopefully fix what she did.
