Windows 7: 150% size zoom in makes Chrome and Adobe Reader overblown size

150% size zoom in makes Chrome and Adobe Reader overblown size

150% size zoom in corrupts Chrome and Adobe Reader - Windows Forum - Computer Support Forums


I have my Windows set to 150% zoom (otherwise it becomes hard to aim at the little buttons in order to click them) It's really nice to have the buttons really big in the list of options that come up when I press the Windows button on the left of Alt button.

But the problem is that it blows up Chrome and Adobe Reader so that it almost becomes unuseable.

Firefox and Internet Explorer is ok. Foxit Reader is ok.

Also, time to time the Chrome appears ok when I log in (not sure about Adobe Reader) but then when I sign out and log in again the overblownness appears again.

My experience is that the 150% only really works if you are using a high resolution, say 1920x1080.

If your native resolution is much lower than that you are going to get bleed over ... text running outside of the buttons they are meant to label... stuff like that.

Have you tried just using large icons instead of blowing up all text and buttons?

How do I figure out the resolution of my computer?

right click the open space on your desktop and choose screen resolution from the context menu.
Given the nature of what you are describing my guess is you are in the 1280x1024 range.

I'm in 1600 x 900, and that doesn't explain why everything else is ok, and only Adobe Reader and Chrome is blown up. (There is no spills, it just is blownup as if I lessened the resolution)

Well ctrl + mousewheel will solve any sizing issues inside of chrome. (if the buttons and menus themselves are affected, you'll have to go into the advanced options in chrome and tell it to ignore the system font/styles)
I'm not quite sure what to do about adobe I personally use foxit reader for pdf stuff.

It's not overblown inside, the whole thing is overblown so that it looks like the whole browser is pixely (the tab sizes are really big too)

Okay I must be misunderstanding what you've done, you have apparently not set large icons or used the normal text resizing feature shown here:
I guess the question is how exactly did you get 150%?

That's exactly what I did - 150% on Display.

I'll get you another guru here, you've stumped me. I use the very same settings and have never experienced the problem you are describing.
