    i just had my LCD replaced at an authorized service center. it's a late 2010 iMac. everything is smaller...for instance all my applications show up on the screen when i expand the app folder, whereas before i had to scroll several pages of apps.
    is this a different resolution lcd? could it be a newer lcd with higher res?
    or, where is the setting for scaling up all the content sizes? i don't remember ever adjusting any settings originally to enlarge content. scaled resolution preference doesn't do it.

    27" iMacs have only ever had one screen resolution.

    For the finder window, in icon view, the lower right corner of the finder window has a slider to control icon size. Maybe someone at Apple moved it.

    not only icons, it's everything. my screen before looked like something between 2560x1440 and 1920x1080. scaling in preferences is not an option because of clarity loss.

    System Preferences - Displays.

    If that does not help then check zoom, this will also be in System Preferences.

    scaling the resolution in system preferences does not give me the resolution that i had before i took it in for repair.
    i used zoom plenty before, even with larger content.

    What resolution is it set at now?

    What has probably happened is that you used a different computer during repair and your eyes got used to the resolution on the temp, or your tech set your screen resolution lower than what it was when you came in or you set it low before it went in and your tech fixed it.
