Edit Preferences causes Lr 6 to lock up after increasing font size

I decided that I need a larger font so I navigated to preferences/interface. On restarting my computer the larger font is present but too large for my preferences so I decided to try another choice. However, now the program is locked up. I can't close the program from any place in the GUI (menu choices or the "X"). My only choice is to reboot the computer to restart Lr. That action brings up the larger font GUI which also is locked.

How can I go back to the standard default settings for font size? The program is locked so I'm unable to change current settings.
