Updated KDE and suddenly everything is huge

Easiest work around fix:
1. Open Appearance setting menu.
2. Open Global Theme.
3. Select Fonts.
4. Check the box next to "Force font DPI" with value 96 and press.
5. Press Apply.
6. Logout of your system and then log into your system again.
7. Problem should be resolved.

r/kde was full of topics about that problem yesterday even r/archlinux and other Linux sub-reddits as well.

Crazy! I guess I am lucky this time around for not encountering this bug..

I am usually dealing with USB problems more than anything these days :)
