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

See if the following makes a difference:

Close Chrome
Right-click the Chrome shortcut on the desktop and select Properties.
Select the Compatibility tab and check the "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings" checkbox.
Click Apply and OK.

Open Chrome and test.

Select Zoom, make sure it's 100%

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?
