Recently Google Photos on my laptop has become too small to see.  All other Google programs are regular size, only Photos.  I’m even unable to see any controls to try to make adjustments.  Web Search says the problem has been resolved but doesn’t say what to do about it and their response is about a year old.  Not sure but I think it occurred when I was trying to scroll down to select a number of images in order to make a monthly album.  You guys are the best source I know!  Thanks.

Hey Frank,

Are you saying that the photos are OK – you can see their pixel size and file size are normal, but when you view them using the Google PHotos website on a computer, they appear tiny?

I haven’t dealt with that – can you give me a link to the post that says the problem has been resolved? Then maybe I can figure it out.

This is the link and 2 photos.  I was able to enlarge the photos by using Ctrl and scrolling but the program itself to still too small.  I’m thinking it might be Operator Error but don’t know what I did or how to correct.

I think I have it fixed.  Not sure what caused it or what I did to fix it but font size seems to be back to normal, at least big enough that I can now read it.  I just kept trying things and …….???  Will let you know if it happens again.  Thank.  Frank

Great! I would think clearing cache would be the best thing.
