    floating start menu after resolution change


    After getting a higher-resolution monitor many windows menus etc. don't scale properly anymore.


    Start menu:

    The search box is floating on the desktop, and the start menu is floating somewhere in mid-air.


    Furthermore, many other menus are not scaling at all:

    If I then rescale the window, for some reason it insists on keeping the blue box there and actually reverts to giving me scrollbars in stead of eliminating the useless blue box:

    So I'd be very happy to receive a fix for this! I was hoping a restart or something would fix it but it hasn't.

  3. Help! Windows 10 changed my resolution and can't see anything!!

    Hi Etan,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.





    Monitors can support resolutions that are lower than their native resolutions, but text won't look as sharp and the display might be small, centered on the screen, edged with black, or stretched. It is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display
    to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor. Your screen resolution needs to be at least
    1024x768 to have multiple windows and apps on your screen at the same time.





    Kindly follow the below methods and check if it helps.


    Method 1:


    I suggest you to set the Display Resolution on your monitor to the recommended level. Follow the below steps

    • Open the Start menu and type Settings in the search bar.
    • Click on System and select Display.
    • Make sure that you have set the Change the size of the text, apps and other items to 100%
      recommended.
    • Click on Advanced display settings.
    • Select the monitor and make sure that you have selected Resolution
      to 1920*1080 Recommended.
    If the issue still persists, then follow the below method.



    Method 2:


    I suggest you to update the display adapter then try to change the screen resolution.

    Follow the steps given below to uninstall and reinstall the display drivers.  

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Search for Display Adapters and expand it.
    • Right click on the Display Adapters and select Uninstall.
    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to contact the manufacturer to download the latest display adapters.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

  4. floating start menu after resolution change

    desktop changed, floating start menu, no settings, etc..


    I"m not sure what I did, but my desktop has changed. I tried to attach a screenshot, but don't think I did it correctly.

    Here's what it looks like when I touch the start button.
    -My start menu items are floating sort of to the right, in the position they normall are.
    -However, this is where it gets wierd.
    -Veritically, on the left
    1. Start button
    2. a button which brings up All Programs
    3. Power button
    <large blank space>
    4. All the way at the top, a button which when clicked shows most used apps.
