Google Chrome Resolution is less than the monitor's - How to reset Chrome?

Hi -

Chrome currently shows 1280x720 resolution, but my monitor is set to the native 1920x1080 of my Samsung SyncMaster 2233.  Why?  How can I reset Chrome so that it displays the native resolution?

I'm running Win7 Pro SP1 64-bit

In Chrome, go to the upper right corner and click the Customize Box

Select Zoom, make sure it's 100%

It is 100%

Ctrl "0" resets the default settings for the browser.

Increase res & zoom out: Ctrl  -
Decrease res & zoom: CTL +

TG-TIS:  Sorry - Ctrl-0 does nothing; and zooming in & out does not change the resolution.

ps - I need to close all chrome windows and restart because (a) the current windows no longer respond to the mouse wheel and will not close by clicking on the red X (nor do the minimize button or maximize toggle);  (b) you can probably see that the OmniBox text is oversized which also happens along with (a) symptoms; (c) a new Chrome window opened with the correct resolution but the OmniBox problems remain - but the red X works!

FYI - Chrome windows are now working fully but all are at the 1280x720 res.

I posted a similar Question a year or more ago, but it was never answered.  

Any Chrome Experts out there?
