    Webpage displaying differently on PC

    I've gone through every possible reason I could think of as to why my webpage is displaying differently on a pc.
    My Navigation bar is enlarged and split into two lines, is the problem.

    I'm testing with a mac 1920 x 1080 resolution and a pc 1920 x 1080 resolution.

    - Page works perfectly on the mac (safari, firefox, chrome)
    - page's navigation is enlarged on ie, chrome & firefox on the PC

    I've checked for any font substitution which could possibly change enlarge the nav, fonts are displaying correctly on both pc and mac though.

    Is it possible it is an OS issue?

    1. No, it’s definitely not an OS issue.
    2. There is no way to help you without you providing a link or your code.

    Well one thing you aren't considering is resolution. If my computer uses a different DPI resolution as yours, even with the same size monitor it will appear bigger or smaller.

    Other reasons why this could happen, the browser settings could have different minimum font sizes. The browsers could accidentally be stuck in 'zoom' mode.

    You could be using different browsers.

    You could have different fonts installed.

    in windows you could be using a large DPI which makes everything appear bigger.

    There are a lot of factors why they could appear different.
