    how to fix small text on chrome browser

    I am running the lastest version of Google's Chrome browser, somehow something changed and now the text in the address bar is small, the extension icons just to the right of the address bar are small and the text on the bottom taskbar showing downloads is also small, is there a way to fix it? (bookmarks and websites are fine)

    I have been looking in settings, researching on the internet and not really seeing it.

    Something changed in the Chrome UI configuration in the last update. The size of text in the Chrome tabs depends on your display settings at Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display. You could experiment with these. I had Disable dpi scaling set on Chrome but I found the tab text too large after the last update and had to disable it - so you could try disabling dpi scaling for Chrome.
