    So I've lost everything from Windows 10 and had to do a reinstall of Windows 10 which was forced into Creators. Downloaded Google Chrome and all of the sudden, the appearance is extraordinarily different. The view feels stretched and there's less space between tabs and top of the window, and in full screen, there's zero space. Icons are small, everything is hard to read and I can't get Chrome looking the way it did.

    This is a full-size window screenshot. It's unbelievably unbearable to me, I feel like I can't see anything. I tried searching everywhere for what happened or why it looks so different but couldn't really figure it out.

    This change happened in the latest update for Chrome to V.69.

    I went back to a version before V.69 and the problem persists. In fact, I tried 2-3 other different versions of Chrome and the problem still persists. I got the old tab view back (though the version refuses to keep my Google accounts logged in).

    I fixed a few of the sizing and viewing issues after fighting Windows Creators for hours trying to adjust settings.

    I'd be content just not using full screen, but several sites (including Google) won't show everything adequately without full screen mode. I'm either straining my eyes or breaking my back trying to see and distinguish between everything.

    But what's the problem? It's a normal look of new Chrome browser, nothing special. Icons look normal on your screenshot.
    Anyway, have you checked zoom in your settings?
