    A lot of it depends on your display resolution as to what to will actually see on your screen.

    The 100% zoom means to use the display settings the way the web page was designed. For example if the designer created the page as a screen size of 800 x 600, 1280 X 720, 1920 x 1080 will determine what you can see.. If the font used was large say 36pt versus 10pt you will see a lot less as well.  If you cannot see everything you want you need to reduce the zoom to say 80% or 90%.  If you are having issues reading the visible text on screen, you may need to increase the zoom to say 125% but this will reduce the amount of visible data/info that can be displayed.
