    Chrome - Explorer Resolution is Poor


    I'm using the latest version of Chrome on my desktop PC on W10 v1909 at resolution 2560x1440.

    This displays fine in normal Chrome browsing. However, when I left click a displayed pdf file to save it, the Explorer window displayed is fuzzy. The normal Windows 10 Explorer window is fine.

    I fixed the issue by using the compatibility option shown below:

    Any idea what causes this and why it started hapening?

    :)

    Explorer, Chrome or Firefox ?

    IE11 has adblock easy list too.

    ie http://www.iegallery.com/en-us/trackingprotectionlists


    Altohugh my no1 is still FF, the only thing that kinda sucks is it doesnt have full 1080p 60fps support @html5 (max 720p), IE11 plays that fine np.

  3. Chrome glitch

    Hello Ralph,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description on one of the three users Chrome is not working.
    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.


    • The account on which you are facing issue with Chrome, does it have the administrator permission?
    • Have you check with other browser? Was the result same?
    • Is the issue specific to only one application or facing issue with other application too?

    First, I would suggest you to use Internet Explorer and see if it brings any difference.
    Here are the steps through which you can use Internet Explorer.




    • Press the Windows key.

    • Type Internet Explorer in the search box.

    • Right click on Internet Explorer
      (Desktop app).

    • Select Pint to task bar.

    • Try to use Internet Explorer from there and see if it brings any difference.

    If you still want to use Chrome then I would suggest you to open the application Chrome in administrator mode and see if it brings any difference. Here are the steps through which you can open Chrome in Administrator mode.

    • Press the Windows key or click on Start icon.
    • Type Google Chrome.
    • Right click on Google Chrome and select the option to Run As Administrator.
    • If everything works fine by running chrome in administrator mode then you may pin it to the task bar.

    Hope this would help. If issue still persists post back with current status of your computer and result of the proposed suggestion, we will be happy to assist you.

    Regards,

    Explorer, Chrome or Firefox ?

    There is an adblocker for Explorer as well. http://simple-adblock.com/

    I just went back to Explorer. Firefox always crashed for me when using flash and with Chrome you are always waiting for the stupid cache.
