This is a per user setting, so it will follow the student from Chromebook to Chromebook. To fix the issue you’ll need to check two things as the student logged in to a Chromebook.

1. Chrome magnification

Look in the address bar, on the right side. Do you see a magnifying class like this:

If there is, hold down the control key and hit 0 (that’s zero). The screen magnification will be reset. You can also click on the magnifying glass and select Reset.

2. Web content resizing
