[SOLVED} How to reduce the row heights in Chromium for the tabs, URL and bookmarks?

Post by InChrist »

Hi :-)

I need more space on my display for the websites to display.
It seems to me that in Chrome it is smaller if I remember correctly.

Greetings, Klaus

I'm not sure if this is what you want, but right click an empty space at top of screen & uncheck 'Use system title bar and borders'.

Hi sleeper12, Klaus and i already did this function in another post, he is now trying to make the url bar as well as the bookmarks bar into a smaller, thinner, profile to occupy less space in his browser which leads me to believe that he may be using a netbook or notebook style computer which limits overall size of useful space for his browser results, reading etc...DAMIEN

I know of no other way to reduce the height/width of the Tabs, URL, and bookmark, space that is allocated to the browser versus your screen size and resolution space allotment, other than disable the, 'Use system title bar and borders', that we already accomplished successfully via the other thread you had on that particular issue and marked as (solved)...i think it is probably as good as it gets right now...I have the same thing on my experimental EEE PC "antique" system with both chromium based browsers, Slimjet and Brave...i cant squeeze any extra space...lol...DAMIEN

I was able to reduce the row heights by:
Menu - Font Selection - Reducing Text scaling factor.
And enlarging the screen resolution.

Another option is to just push F11 to hide everything.
