[Solved] Database form displays shrunk on Win 10 laptop

Postby niochorio » Thu May 19, 2016 9:57 am

I have had this database for several years and this morning my forms all appear in shrunk-down displays. The database and tables open as normal but when I open a form it appears as in screenshot 01 (in a small window) and if I maximise the window, it appears as in screenshot 02, crammed into the upper left hand corner. It was working normally yesterday and the computer was as usual in sleep mode overnite. This new behaviour appeared in the morning. To my knowledge there were no Windows or OO updates. Have I done something wrong somewhere? Appreciate any ideas!! Both screenshots are attached.

Move the little slider on the bottom right hand of OO to the right. In your inset screen this is set to 50%.

Good grief! I must be blind! But seriously, thank you! I have never seen this feature before and hunted all through settings. Thank you very much for this 100% solution!
