We are convoluting a number of different factors into this situation in the replies, yet they are NOT the same issue. So let's consider what is truly the problem, as encountered by OP...
- A computer video card is configured with the O/S to have a certain resolution supported in software, e.g. 1024 x768
- A computer monitor has its own hardware-imposed limitation, e.g. laptop with 1366x768 vs. other laptop model with 1920x1080
I can configure my video card to provide LESS PIXELS from the card, in the display of web pages than the monitor can support (e.g. 1024x768 pixels on a 2560x1440 monitor) in which case
- a window of a given size (e.g. 1024x768) suddenly fills the monitor and all of the text within that window appears larger than if the video card resolution were properly set
- a window of a larger size (e.g. 1920x1080) would overflow (not fit) the monitor and of the text within that window appears larger than if the video card resolution were properly set
Having just done the above with my own computer configuration for test purposes, I know what I described above is the case.
Now, to the OP issue...
- Most computer software will attempt to reduce the photo to fit within a monitor...e.g. a photo of 2000x1200 pixels is displayed at 50% to fit a resolution of 1000x600 if that is the video card setting.
- But when instructed to do so, that same software will have 3/4 of the photo area 'fall off the monitor' when the user says to display the photo 'at 100%'... only 1000x600 pixels are on the montor, and the three quarters of the photo are off the edge of the monitor, and you can scroll across the photo within this 'zoomed' view.
...it seems that the OP has this 'zoomed' partial view. It is as if a web page were designed for display on a 1920x1080 screen area, but most of that area 'falls off' a 1366x768 laptop monitor.
For example, looking at POTN New Posts listing on my desktop with 2560x1440 support, I can see listed 30 New Posts; on my 1366x768 laptop, the same list of POTN New Posts only fits the first 12 New Posts!
Yet I can take a 2888x1925 photo file, which would not fit my 2560c1440 desktop monitor nor my 1366x768 laptop monitor at 100%, and I can view the entire
photo on both monitors because my software automatically reduces the Percentage view appropriately on both machines.
We need a better description from the OP about what is being seen or not seen in the computer, both for web pages and for photographs being viewed
