Windows 7: Zoom Problem

Zoom Problem

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section, I'm new to this forum.

I got my desktop upgraded to Windows 7 and everything seems to be fine except the fact that everything is zoomed in. I really don't know much about computers but a couple of people told me it had to deal with the screen resolution. When I went to adjust the screen resolution I went to
ControlPanel>Display>ScreenResolution
But the resolution option was not highlighted so I wasn't able to adjust it. Does anybody know if I'm doing something wrong or if it's another problem its self?

This is how the forum looks.

Try to right click on desktop >personalize>display>then change it the way it suits you.

If that does not work. Control panel>display>adjust resoulution and then use the drop down menu.

That's what I tried at first but the for some reason it doesn't give me the option to adjust it so I can't use the drop down menu.

This is what it look's like when I go to that menu

I think you want to check this setting, It also looks like you may want to update your graphics driver.

DPI Display Size Settings - Change

Type device manager in search. Go there. Then make sure that there are not yellow warning markers. Then update the driver for the video card (video adaptors)

Hello Dee1 Welcome to SF !!

Can we know what Display card are you using ?? Please post us we will find the best drivers for you. It really looks like a Drivers issue.

I am gonna make a stupid suggestion, maybe you've tried. If not give'r a go.


Hold CTRL and hit the plus or minus sign to zoom in or out. Can't hurt



***EDIT**** I know it works on FF and Chrome, not sure about IE though.

Now this is really, really, really annoying. Default Internet zoom setting is 100% which makes the screen way too small to see. As a result I have to set the zoom at 200%. Well, up until recently I've had no trouble with my new computer. After setting the zoom to 200% it's stayed that way. Now...
