I want to set the sharepoint intranet homepage width. If i view in 80% from IE or chrome all the content appears better n sharper. However, at 100% (nornal view) the content appears too large / big in size.

Therefore, want to set the same for all pages on my site.

  • thanks for the followup. I`ve tried on my SPS 2013 Intranet site, yes it changes the width of the homepage. On the other hand, the webpart alignment is impacted, though all are set based on CSS. Any suggestions. – Jason May 24 '16 at 0:29
  • @ahmed, Using Stylebot in Google Chrome, I tried setting the Width of the page to: 1560px and height: 850px. Also added overflow: scroll CSS code - div.col-lg-10.col-md-9.col-sm-12 { width: 1560px; height: 850px; overflow: scroll; } Still the web part alignment getting impacted, Example screenshot for better understanding - a) Home Pg appears in Full screen with width set to 1560px, imgur.com/gcoTsxY b) When, Home Pg appears in Full screen with width set to 1560px, but browser Is set to restore down mode . imgur.com/3F9vVHz – Jason Jun 9 '16 at 1:38
  • I Tried following the article and mapping a CSS file, that would allow to set the page width. But still the webpart gets disaligned the moment the screen resolution is lowered. Any other option? – Jason Jul 18 '16 at 0:52
  • You need to go with % inplace of px for width.. – Hardik Jul 18 '16 at 6:10
  • Mate changing to % doesnt makes any difference with webpart alignment – Jason Jul 18 '16 at 21:01
