    Steam client - how can I zoom-in?

    I can not find any settings to adjust this. I have a 15,6 inch 1080p monitor (laptop), and when I open Steam client, everything in it is tiny. I have to get my head close to the screen to read something. How can I fix this?

    Here is the screenshot of the problem:



    Oh, I use Ubuntu 16.04, 64-bit. AMD A6-7310 APU with AMD Radeon R4 Graphics × 4. Gallium 0.4 on AMD MULLINS (DRM 2.49.0 / 4.10.10-041010-generic, LLVM 4.0.1)

    I know that happens when using a 1080p laptop screen. I cannot even imagine what it is like on a 4K laptop, but I have seen posts on Steam about people with 4K complaining about that (even Windows users). I cannot even find a DPI or text size setting in Ubuntu anymore. See if something in Ubuntu itself under "Universal Access" in "Settings" can help. Unfortunately my gaming laptop with 15.6" 1080p screen no longer turns on, so I cannot test that.

    It is fine on a 32" 1080p HDTV.
