Windows 10: I can't adjust my computer to adapt to my display (too zoomed in).

    I can't adjust my computer to adapt to my display (too zoomed in).

    Hello everyone,

    I am having troubles with adjusting my screens to adapt to each other.
    I have the same resolution on my computer screen as well as on my computer, but certain things are way to zoomed in.

    What is the problem?

    Hi personneici. Welcome to the TenForums @personneici

    First please fill out your system spec so that member have a chance to help you.

    Fill in System Specs, include Windows 10 version and build number at

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    Not sure what you mean, you have the same resolution set on my computer screen as well as my computer. Could you explain please?

    I think you are saying your screen is capable of x by y resolution and you set that as your resolution in Windows, is this correct?

    If so I don't know what you mean by "adjusting my screens to adapt to each other"

    Did this problem just start? Can you pin down to the exact day?

    Are you using integrated graphics or a graphic expansion card?

    Have you made any changes recently or install any software / hardware?

    If you check Windows Update history has Windows installed updates or drivers, particularly drivers that impact graphics?

    Do you have system restore enabled?

    Check your browser zoom setting and/or reset browser to default settings.

    While I'm not OP don't think this is a browser issue. Look at size of context menu screen shot, it consumes almost the home screen if I'm seeing this correctly.

    Is the OP maybe using a VGA cable(that's analog, get rid of it) or a DVI(junk it too), instead of either an HDMI(for digital content 1080 - 1440p to 144Hz or 4K at 30Hz) or a display port(best and good for 4K 60Hz).

    DVI does transmit digital...only thing missing is the audio. Then HDMI came along as a AIO cable option.

    Video signal
    Digital video stream:
    Single link: 1920**1200 (WUXGA) @ 60*Hz
    Dual link: 2560**1600 (WQXGA) @ 60*Hz
    Analog video stream: 1920**1200 (WUXGA) @ 60*Hz

    plankton you are right about the sound, I just meant it is a lousy interface, and if the OP can try either HDMI or DisplayPort if he can.
