Google Chrome screen resolution
I'm not sure where to post this so please forgive me if I am in the wrong place. I am wondering if there is any way to run a program in custom screen resolution on my Gateway GT5473E running Vista Home Premium 32 bit? (native 1440 x 900) I have tried the Programs Compatibility Wizard but I can't find any tweaks that will allow me to set a custom screen resolution for a single program. Any help would be appreciated, I am using Google Chrome and I can't read the tabs bar / address bar / favorites bar since they updated it from the 5.0 version.
Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. No, actually there are other programs and some web sites that I have trouble with. I have Nero 8 Ultra Edition (retail) and I have to run Nero Vision in compatibility mode using this option:
"Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
Try this option if you are experiencing problems with the program display on high DPI settings."
Also, I have I have to use the same settings for Adobe Photo Deluxe 4.0. Some web sites do not properly recognize my screen resolution, I have resolution set to 1440x900 both in the control panel and in the NVIDIA control panel but yahoo, for instance, gives me a message that my "screen resolution is set too low for optimal viewing (minimum 800x600). Some other sites as well, especially one where I might download a new background (Desktop Nexus) Not sure what the problem could be, as far as Chrome goes (V6) I have increased the DPI to 155% & that has helped some, I have updated all the drivers that I can think of and even did a fresh install of Vista Home Premium. I can deal with it I guess but if you have any ideas I'd be glad to try them. I can send DxDiag or msinfo32 info if any of it would be helpful.
Thanks again!
