That sounds like the zoom feature of your TV has been enabled. The Roku itself has size settings. It has resolution settings, that doesn't force text off screen if you choose a resolution that doesn't match your display's native resolution. Look on the remote for your TV and look for a picture size or aspect ratio button. You also might have to look in the TV's display settings. 

This is assuming you are not referring to a Roku TV, but a Roku player.

How do you reduce picture size when dealing with a Roku Stick+ not a Roku player.

There is no size adjustment on any Roku player. Size is a function of the display itself, not anything you connect to the display.
