Sorry I'm having trouble understanding you, but to see the drop down menu you must hover your mouse over the icon, not click it.

What I think he's saying is similar to a problem another user raised a little while back.

Under certain desktop layouts, typically tablets or rotatable displays, the Community button sits beneath the Hardware & Software button. So that, when a pointer hovers over the Hardware & Software button, the first few items on the dropdown menu is obscured by the Community button sitting below the Hardware & Software button.

I can't access those menu items either, but I don't mind using the general Hardware & Software button.

Usually that's a zoom problem that's easily corrected, but if it's on a tablet and you don't have control over it, a workaround is to go to the home page where there's a list of all top level forums on the right hand column.

I suppose the next question is, what can be done about it? :)

The display on the tablet is being adjusted to account for the portrait layout, or as with some rotatable displays they compensate for potential page layouts. So, I wonder if it being described as a zoom problem is an over-simplification, not saying you are wrong, but that it is something the user has no convenient control over. Could it be more a consequence of the evolution of the Web's interface?

The "zoom problem" description is in reference to desktop browsers. Tablets are a completely different beast, and I would wager that fixing the problem there would involve catering to the tablet browsers in question with conditional HTML/CSS, and possibly even having cases for different tablets due to varying aspect ratio.

I'm not dismissing the problem by any means, I just think solving it is impractical at present given the variance in tablets and installed browsers as well as the very small minority of members using tablets (sorry Davey).

However, if anyone who is having trouble with a tablet wants to reply to this thread or PM me with the make and model of their tablet as well as the browser having a problem, I can compile a list of them and look into how much effort would really be involved.

hmm, I had that issue with windows 8 (IE). I just reseted my computer and it was alright. You can also just zoom in once, it will re-adjust.

Check this also,this is also troubling me. 358aa6de4e594ee1eaa90aa5fec07e93
