Okay....

So my desktop at home automatically fits the image I view on DPC to my screen. The one at work does not. How do I toggle the image?

If you resize your browser window on the work machine it does not re-scale the image? It should. If it does not, which browser is that? Is it different from the one in use on your home machine?

Chrome both places.

The window fits, but the image DPC displays doesn't fit.

I can resize that? How?

If you intentionally make the browser window smaller (not full screen, then drag a corner), you should see the image being resized to fit the smaller window automatically. I *think* there are some specific situations where this does not occur, but in most cases it should. If it is not doing so in a particular browser on a machine, e.g. Chrome on your work machine, try viewing the same page in Edge and see if it works there.

Also, CTRL - to zoom out, CTRL + to zoom in, CTRL 0 to reset zoom.

I'm not describing my issue properly.

The window size is fine, it's the image within the window.

At home, my PC makes it fit the window. Not here at work.

That works, but it shrinks the text, too. At home, it's just the image.

do you mean images that are in voting?

Specifically, when I view my own image in voting and/or Workshop.

I may have to do a little more comparison. It just seems like my display works better at home. Does monitor size have anything to do with how the image renders on a page?

Monitor resolution shouldn't affect whether the image scales properly to fit the window. It will, of course, affect how well the image displays when scaled. Have you tried on the "problematic" machine with a different browser to see if the behavior is the same? I've confirmed that on two separate machines with widely differing resolutions (one 4k the other 1920x1200) images do scale for me, including images in voting.

I'm gonna have to do some checking for identical issues. It's possible I'm just feeble-minded and just never noticed this issue before. I'm having trouble seeing all of my entry on DPC. I can screen it out of my Pictures library that it fits.
