    All screens are small when returning from screensaver


    I use a 32" LED TV as a monitor. I have for the last 4 years happily through Windows 7 and 8.1.

    Since moving over to Windows 10 if I walk away from my desktop for an extended period my screen is switched off as I expect but, when i jiggle my mouse the screen wakes up okay but ALL my screens have been resized much smaller.

    This effects Firefox (full screen), Skype and even my 4 screens on my Arduino microprocessor IDE.

    I have my display setting to "turn off after 30 minutes" and "sleep" never. Strangely it has to be much longer than that for the effect to happen. If I go away for, say, 50 minutes. Come back, jiggle the mouse - everything comes back okay. But if I go away for 90 minutes or more, for instance, all the screens are semi minimised when I jiggle mouse and the monitor (TV) wakes up. *cry

    Not earth shattering but very annoying to have to resize all my screens every time. I have checked all my settings (they are unchanged for years) and it never happened before I updated to W10. *Rolleyes

    This thread WAS posted in the wrong area and solved so thanks....

    :)

  2. Blank screen on return from screensaver

    Problem solved by finding a free on-line photogallery screensaver and replacing Windows Live version. Same settings needed so no problems setting up.
