When I save an image that shows 100% in my artboard and I open the jpeg after it is double the size (like in view size, not the amount of mbs) at 100% and pixels everywhere? Why? I'm using Photoshop CC .

How are you saving that JPEG image?
How are you seeing it double the size?  Do the pixel counts actually double, or just the size on screen in a browser?

Save as... In the picture my artboard says 100% and then when I open the image in 'preview' or with space it shows this,...

Ok, so Preview is doubling the size of the image when displaying it.
100% in Photoshop means one image pixel = one screen pixel.

Yes but it also doubles the size of the image when uploading it somewhere? It didn't use to be like this in older photoshop versions? Or is it dependant on my screen size? How can I export/save the image having the exact size as my artboard?

That depends on the browser. Some browsers automatically double image sizes (to mimic browser behavior on low res displays).

You already did save/export at exactly the same size as your artboard.

And yes, this behavior is very dependent on your display resolution.

Thanks for the help, Chris!! Although would there be a way to not have my computer/browser do this?
