Hi,
I have an issue with my computer screen. My page is huge, i play games and such and the screen always starts out to big when i lower the percentage of view then it becomes to small. Whatever site or page I go into it is to big to show the entire view, then as I said when I lower the percentage certain games wont work. I have tried installing 3 different browsers, mozilla, chrome and explorer thinking maybe my browser was the cause however no matter what browser I use the screen never fits the page. This is annoying and I dont have the money to pay $50 to have someone ajust the screen size? I recently reinstalled my ENTIRE windows essentially formatting my computer and starting from scratch thats when the trouble started. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Tried the zoom, as stated that's the percentage i was speaking of. Zoom changes the percentage. That does not fix the problem, but thanks for the insults. I 71 years old sorry if I am not as computer literate as the rest of you. However if you read my post thoroughly you would have understood that when I change my percentage that is the zoom. reading Comprehension is important, especially when called someone as old as I am a moron. Hopefully someone with knowledge and proper understanding of my question can help, what has the world come to when all people know how to do is insult others who ask serious questions.

try changing the screen resolution using the game options. That way you don't have to change your desktop resolution, the game will resize the screen when you start it, and return it to the regular size when you quit the game.

No promises on results but if you haven't done this yet, you could hit up all your windows updates then look for optional updates in there and select any video drivers that show up. You could also try the computer's mfg website for video drivers as well. Good luck!

If you just reinstalled Windows it's possible you're missing the video driver.

Do the icons on your desktop appear larger too?

Icons? Meaning on the desktop? If so no they are the same size. I am able to watch videos just have to switch browsers and change size to play games and such. Just a pain it is at least 50% to big for monitor and when I lower percentage it drastically decreases size so it's to small when pop up windows appear for games. I have been able to play since I downloaded Chrome but it's still to big for screen
