I was unable to open a larger resolution version of the current screenshot of the week in a regular way.

Seeing that the current one is mostly text, I wanted to zoom in and read what is written. The only way to do this was by using "view image" from the context menu. The name of submitting user is linked to their profile, though.

Browser: Firefox for Manjaro 85.0.1

Plugins: uBlock Origin, Vim Vixen, Asciidoctor.js Preview and some others

  • As a workaround, you can use an extension like imagus on firefox which shows a larger version of the image when you hover on it, example. If you're on chrome there's probably smth for that too. – Ave Feb 15 at 9:45

    It's not related to browser, the image is simply not a link. – Shadow The Vaccinated Wizard Feb 15 at 9:45
  • [status-declined] on the duplicate, following suit here. According to Des (Director of Product, Public Platform) - this isn't something SE is looking to fix in the near term. – Robotnik Feb 22 at 0:20

Until this is fixed, another workaround which I'm using myself is to right click the image, and choosing "Open image in new tab": (or its equivalent in your browser, below is for Chrome)

open image in new tab as workaround

This will open the full size image in a new browser tab.

    'View Image' on Firefox – Robotnik Feb 15 at 10:09

Zooming in from the widget itself doesn't work for me too, I don't know if this is intended or not.

In a meantime, you can go to "Hall of Fame" meta question and search for this screenshot there: Screenshot of the Week - Hall of Fame (this link is also included in the screenshot widget)
