You could also try changing the font type to something more readable like "verdana"

The font resising worked for my desktop and what not but what should I do about chrome and other applications? Any idea what have went rock in the install, i've instaled win 7 3 times just to see if it fixed it? Again, thanks for the help, I appreciate it.

For your web browser you can hold the "ctrl" button and then use your mouse scroll wheel to adjust font size per html window. Many newer applications do have object and font size options(google it), some older apps are just going to be out of luck(magnifying glass time).

Ok, one final question, are 1440p monitors normally meant to be zoomed out like this at normal font size?

This is just a simple byproduct of having that level of pixel density. The higher PPI(pixels per inch) you have the greater pixel pitch(distance vector per vision) you have. With a higher pixel pitch it dictates you have the screen a little closer to your face(which is of a personal preference). Just like a smartphone with a very high PPI or a small 1080p monitor vs a 1080p 55" TV there are different levels of pixel pitch that will give you a sort of zoomed feel.

So it is not that it is so much "zoomed" it is that the pixels are so small you end up with a more defined and seemingly small UI. So to more directly answer your question yes any 1440p monitor with stock DPI to PPI ratio will by your own perspective seem "zoomed" given what you have told me so far. If you were to take a 5" smartphone with a 1080p resolution it would be much worse than your screen and would appear to be extremely hard to read, until you move the phone closer to your face and decrease your pixel pitch.

Welcome to 1440p?

My guess is that you were not running native resolution before.

I am kinda thinking that as well and i am glad to know that he is at his monitor's optimal resolution now. Honestly as soon as you get your UI setup you are in for a treat due to the huge quality improvement you are no doubt seeing at 1440p.

I'd recommend trying lower resoltuions OP to see if the scale is how you remember. Right Click the Desktop, select "Screen Resolution" and start trying some. Though, once you do that, go back to 1440p. It's what you paid for. If 1440p native is a bit hard to get accustomed to, raise the DPI as Spartan said and zoom in on Web pages to help with txt.

Thanks everyone, the only thing that is small now is the browser, I guess it was the same size before I just didn't realise, also I've coed it to 96hz at 1440p
