Solved Video zoomed in on desktop

January 30, 2020 at 12:54:00
Specs: Windows 10
I'm having problems with my videos playing zoomed in so much you can't tell what it is you are viewing. I can see pages and websites just fine, but even saved videos on my Desktop are now zoomed in. However, I don't have any problem viewing YouTube videos. Any suggestions?

VLC media player is highly recommended here. I tried it to convert a format and now use it for audio playing. It is a free download.

See if thes two M$links are helpful

Possibly the second one might be useful, as it might be you’ve (inadvertently/unintentionally) invoked the zoom function which that link covers? If so then likely you can work out how to disable it?

In most windows the Control + zooms in and the Control - zooms out. It may not help but it is simple and worth a try to just hold the Cpntrol and tap the - key and see if it helps.

I think this exact same problem with zoomed-in videos was
posted here before, sometime in the last year or thereabouts.
It doesn't appear to be among the "Related Solutions" linked
from this page.

Regarding Ctrl +/- ... I've generally had some trouble using
that function in either IE or Edge, when I zoom in a large
number of times in one window and then have to try to zoom
out the same number of times in a different window in order
to get back to normal.

"then have to try to zoom out the same number of times in a different window in order to get back to normal"

If you enable the Status Bar, the zoom percentage is displayed in the lower right corner of the browser window. You can adjust from there.

Edge apparently does not have a status bar. The zoom factor can
be seen by clicking on the three dots "more" button ... at top-right.

Sorry for the delay guys, the standard zoom controls don't work. Ive uninstalled and re installed updated video drivers with no luck either. I'll try the links later tonight but so far no fixes.

As riider asked in the first reply, what program are you
using to play videos? Is it whatever program was included with
Windows 10? If so, which program is that? (I think there was
more than one, and I've been using other players long enough
that I've forgotten exactly what came with Windows 10.)
