Right-click on the Google Chrome shortcut or start menu icon and select properties.

Enter the following code at the end of the text in the Target field:

/high-dpi-support=1 /force-device-scale-factor=1

Make sure thereโ€™s a blank space between the .exeโ€ part and the first forward slash, like shown in the picture above.

Hit Apply and then restart Chrome.

If the scaling isnโ€™t back to normal, make sure to launch Chrome from the location specified above. For example, it didnโ€™t work at first for me because I was opening Chrome from a link pinned to the taskbar. Unpinning Chrome and dragging it back from the start menu fixed the problem, but itโ€™s not a permanent fix anyway because other links to Chrome (like hyperlinks in PDFs) can trigger the larger UI as well.
