Chrome browser poor resolution fix

by antennaguy1 / June 15, 2011 10:33 PM PDT

For some reason, Google Chrome downloads with low resolution, but it's easily fixed. Right-click on the Google Chrome icon on the desktop and
Select the COMPATIBILITY tab and check the "Disable display
scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox.
Apply the changes and click OK to close the properties dialog.

Strange, I never had this problem with Chrome

Perhaps you had some non-standard setup? Difficult to say as you provide no information about your system, so all I can say is, no problems here.

Worked great!

Went immediately from 1994 graphics to 2013. Google should really change the defaults so this doesn't happen. It makes them look horrible, and because of the terrible idea to go with minimalist, it's very hard to see how to find this, and so much; it's very hard to work with this browser because they wanted to look artsy and "minimalist".

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
