Ok I got a new PC with s High Res Display and
the Dynamic graphs on this site are now super
small but the regular graph is OK.
Also it does not help to zoom on the graph.
Like I had to get a magnifying glass to install the cannon printer
driver.
This is one of the few places I have this problem but
some of my older software does this to.
Is this a microsoft fail or is there something on the website
that needs to change?
Windows 10 on Lenovo yoga 900 is what I am running.
Talked to support and they said there have been other reports of this.

Just to complicate things try a different browser.

Hi resolution displays mean essentially that the monitor brings a very high number of dots (individually illuminated "bulbs") per inch. If a graphic is A dots high x B dots wide it's actual, raw dimension will be smaller on a high res screen. After all, the high red screen features more dots in a smaller area on the screen.

You should be able to adjust your monitor settings directly or the graphics rendering settings in Windows' control panel.

Are you trying to get the detail in the original "classic" iWindsurf, or the newer, more powerful website. With the latter one, there are two ways to view a site. Click on the site, and you get a mini graph. Over on the right of the screen is a green rectangle with an arrow and 3 bars within it. When it is clicked, it provides a much larger graph with more detail, to include various other choices you can make relative to the site. It's a two step process.

I use a windows 10 machine at 3840 x 2160 on a 27" 16:9 monitor. I run application scaling at 150% or 125% depending on what I'm doing. To change this setting right click on your desktop, choose display settings and then move the slider to change the scale. I like 150% best. I use 125% to work on large complex CAD drawings only.

Hope this helps Smile

Mike

Hold down the "ctrl" key and scroll the wheel on the mouse to adjust your to preferred zoom.

The thing is it won't Zoom I know how to zoom and it works
on most other pages.

Everything else will zoom on the page but not the graph itself.
dosen't matter how much I change the zoom or display setting this
is a software display / scaling issue.

It seems you're looking at a different page than I look at. My page has the new IWindsurf forcast graph and it's link below where your's shows a wind direction graph.

Why would you want to look at a wind direction graph when you have direction arrows on the current wind graph????

The new iwindsurf site looks OK
and the graphs there will zoom but not the old
dynamic graph but I prefer it to the new one.
The direction is at the top of the graph in the old
dynamic format.
I kind of don't get what you mean as all the graphs have
wind direction someplace . That is not my concern.
Its the fact the size is shrunken to a unusable level.
