Windows 8 and website pictures

by Walt H / July 18, 2013 12:46 PM PDT

Running Windows 8
Anyone else have problems with IE 10 (latest version) not displaying website pictures correctly. Example: when browsing, IE 10 displays some of the product pictures so large that it covers up some of the purchase options and other information. Page zoom is set to 100% and text size is medium.

I have a leptop with Windows 7 Home Premium and IE 10 (latest version), and it does not have this problem.

Clarification Request
Recent issue, or always the same?
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / July 18, 2013 5:17 PM PDT

Hi Walt. Has this always been an problem with IE 10 in your Win 8 system, or is this a recent issue?

If recent, what has changed recently? I am wondering if a recent Windows Update has anything to do with the problem. Have a look at Carol's post, also in this forum, here; Unofficial Report: MS13-057 and Video Related Issues.

It is about one of the latest Windows Updates and although specifically about video editing, I wonder if there has been any leakage of the problem into image display in IE.

Have you tried any other browser in Win 8?

The issue has been going on for quite a while now. I never paid much attention before until I saw the difference on the Windows 7 machine and checked the version of IE that was running on that machine.

P.S. The link in your post is does not affect my system as my issue only applies to the product pictures on a website and not windows media video files.

Problem solved. It was a "compatibility view" issue on my Windows 8 machine.
