After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. widows 8.1 update 10/17/13 6:21 PM
Chrome Version (type about:version into your omnibox):
Operating System (Windows 7/8/Vista/XP, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS): Windows 8.1
Extensions (type Chrome:extensions into your omnibox):

After updating to Windows 8.1, Chrome seems to blur much more than before.
It seems like 600 * 800 resolution, even if mine is 1920 * 1080.

Maybe (or maybe not) MS wants me to use IE instead of Chrome.

Is anyone having same problem with me, and know how to fix it?

Confirmed to have the same problem. Good to know I am not alone.

I am having the same issue. You can sort of fix it by right clicking the desktop, selecting screen resolution. On the bottom of the page click "Make text or other items larger or smaller" and slide the slider to small.

This fixes chrome, but it makes Windows explorer windows look small.

I am having a taskbar issue as well- icons are big and icons in tray are big and pixellated.

Alright fixed it. While you are on that screen per my previous post check the box that allows you to set one resolution for all monitors, then select small and log out and back in- will be back to normal then.

The change was Microsoft's answer to plugging a tablet into an external display and having everything be tiny.

My Chrome desktop install resolution looks bad. If I choose Relaunch Chrome in Windows 8 Mode it looks better, but then Hangouts doesn't work and I use that a lot. I don't see the option for a check box or setting one resolution for all monitors. Where is that?

Also, all of my tabs seem to have different zooms. The zoom seems to default to 125% which looks crappy so I have to change it but the resolution still loos bad.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. mgroup 10/17/13 11:06 PM
Chose update and restart and I think the resolution is fixed. And the zoom is not weird anymore.

Hi ... Last night I installed a new update Winodws 8.1. today .... I checked all the settings and program applications, whether they function as they should. ... everything worked correctly, except for Google Chrome. ... problem was the resolution setting Chrome (my laptop has a resolution of 1920x1080), but Chrome was in a completely different resolution (see the first screen). .... I solved the problem after changing this setting (see the second screen) ... I hope that if you have a similar problem, so this guide will help you.....(settings are same in all other languages)
- sorry if there are some mistakes...I use translate.google.com

I'm glad I helped... you can use this fix for all other programs (probably :D )
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. whatismoo 10/22/13 9:23 AM
however this option makes almost everything else tiny and annoying. hopefully this will be fixed in an update.
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Timotej Barancik 10/22/13 9:31 PM
Yes, it's true...but now it's best way to fix it....(do you know when will be a new update ?)
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. DaninSA 10/22/13 9:39 PM
I started a post over at the Windows Support forums. MS won't look at it until it gets a lot of "me too" clicks, so head on over there to make them fix it.

thank you! my samsung ativ smart pc pro 700t was facing the same issue, your post solved (set small resolution and all monitors, and later setting it back to medium)
for those who are having issues with 700t and windows 8.1:
screen brightness (in swupdate select to find your model, find it, and save swupdate to disk (is older version), uninstall current swupdate and reinstall the older one. after update graphics card

also don't forget saving touch and digitizer drivers, and chipset. reinstall them to get touch fixed (it was stopping responding (only finger touch))

phantom image on black background still couldn't solve
any bigger issues, or solutions you guys may contact my through my google profile

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Thangeo 10/30/13 4:19 PM
Just go to Control panel->Display->tick smaller ie 100% restart and you should be good to go. Tick also Let me choose one scalling level for all my displays.

I'm having the same problem, I have a resolution of 1920,1080 and since using windows 8.1, which took days to download by the way, the pages seem to be blurred on chrome, although the zoom settings in the top right hand corner say 100%. It's ridiculous.
I can't understand the posts, here, by people who claim to have fixed the problem I'm afraid.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Steven Parry 11/4/13 8:34 AM
None of the aforementioned solutions have worked for me. What's more i'm in a multi-monitor set up (idenitcal monitors) and chrome is blurred in my main monitor but not in my secondary monitor. Setting flags/windows 8 compatibility/the scaling flag in the display control panel have not worked for me. (And i had it on smaller to begin with).

Does anyone else have any solutions?

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Steven Parry 11/4/13 8:44 AM
And one other thing! The chrome://flags screen renders fine, its regular web pages that do not.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. ChrisCorey601 11/13/13 1:54 PM
This works for all programs.
Right click on desktop shortcut
Go to Properties
Click on compatibility tab
Check "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings"
Click OK or Apply
Restart the program and everything should be back to normal
I hope Windows 8.1 comes out an update to sort this DPI thing out but for right now this is the best solution.

Although I've been very frustrated about the way chrome looks on windows 8.1, I was actually having some problems with chrome anyway because the pages don't always load properly. I have, however, noticed that the other browser, internet explorer 11, looks really sharp and crisp now, and it didn't on windows 8, so it's goodbye to chrome, hello internet explorer for me.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Paul Stubbings 11/26/13 12:00 AM
To diane, just a thought, are you in windows 8 mode? You can change to the desktop mode, which is better, by clicking on the settings tab on the top right of the screen.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Grisha 11/27/13 4:51 PM
Looks like the issue is in rendering Chrome on the main screen (I do not have this issue on my secondary monitor)
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. bonnie johnson 11/28/13 2:41 AM
I like google. But for years every time I download Chrome I always uninstall within six months. It messes up my computer every time. Now I upgraded to 8.1 and I'm glad I read this information. Thank you :)
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. bonnie johnson 11/28/13 2:44 AM
Yes, me too! I'm glad I'm not the only one dealing with same issues. Firfox is worse! Yep, internet explorer, after a few years of not using it, I'm loving it even more!

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Ricardo Rodrigues 11/30/13 7:57 AM
Thanks for the help. This finally worked.
I think Microsoft should start opening their eyes to their rising problem.
By launching shit all the time people seem to be getting tired.
Why launch a program with this kind of negative impact?
Did they fire all the testers?

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Paul Stubbings 1/12/14 3:25 AM
I have been using Internet Explorer for about 8 weeks now, since google Chrome became ugly on windows 8.1; I have a Samsung Chronos series 7 laptop with a full hd resolution screen. I find that I have got on very well with Explorer, it is razor sharp on 8.1, and it loads very well.
I haven't read anything here which for me really solves the resolution problem with chrome, or am I missing something?
If people are having problems, to start with try downloading Internet Explorer because you can add bookmarks and a button gallery if you add the bookmarks bar, so you get as much as you would on Chrome.
I have found that Chrome still works very well on my Samsung tablet though.

Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Paul Stubbings 1/13/14 2:27 AM
The problem is I only have chrome on the taskbar, so I cant get properties to show, and when I search the programs I've only got a option to uninstall? Anyone got a solution to this, rather than for me to take ages to pick it up
Re: After windows 8.1 update, the resolution of chrome seems to be bad. Timotej Barancik 1/13/14 10:51 AM
Try find it manually..in my laptop is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application" ..it is probably default path but try "*:\Program Files (with or without (x86)\Google\*" or something else.

I was having problems with my external monitor after the Windows 8.1 upgrade.
I checked my HP updates and driver and even updated my video card.
I found this article to be helpful.

Well should put it this way saying go to Screen Resolution ---> Find this "Make text and other items larger or smaller" selection ----> Tick "Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays" ----> Set it to Smaller and relog ----> go back to the same menu set it back to medium would do....

I just did the same thing and everything looks horrible.  Taskbar icons are too small to see, everything else looks hazy, especially in Chrome but in other browsers too. I tried changing screen res didn't make any difference.
