Windows zoomed in after waking after sleep mode

Once in a while, the screen will be zoomed in after computer has gone into sleep mode.  Lately it's been happening very often and the last couple of days every time it's awakened.  How do I stop this?

Hi Knemeyer,


What is the make and model of the computer?


Let us follow these methods and check.


Method 1:

This issue is caused when the video drivers are not up to date. So, I would suggest you to update the video drivers from the manufacturer’s website and check.

Method 2:

I would suggest you to run hardware troubleshooter to check if something is wrong with the hardware.

Open the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter


Method 3:

You can try running power troubleshooter to adjust your computer's power settings. The Power troubleshooter checks things like your computer's timeout settings, which determine how long the computer waits before turning off the monitor display or entering sleep mode. Adjusting these settings can help you conserve power and extend your computer's battery life.

Here is the link which says how to do it.
