Just run winecfg again. Of course it will be "cropped" but you can move it on
the screen in order to reach buttons you need.
In most cases you can move windows larger than your screen (and all other
windows) with Alt+Mouse, that is press and hold Alt key and move your mouse -
this will move a window under the cursor. Sometimes Meta ("Windows") key is
used instead of Alt (this depends on your configuration of window manager).
Therefore you can move winecfg with oversized fonts on the screen in order to
reach all parts of its GUI.
Explanation seems to be a little long but actually this is very simple
and fast way (much faster than editing registry by hand). It takes just few
seconds to change from, say, 480 DPI back to 96 (or whatever you want).
