  1. Migrated OS not setting window sizes correctly for HD display


    I've migrated my old OS to a new machine with an HD display. There is one remaining problem with the install. The default window sizes for apps, as well as system windows is too small. Some programs seem to remember their corrected sizes, but others, including the windows 'save as' dialog do not. Here are a couple of examples:

    In both cases, I resize the window, but it comes up this size when opened again. Thoughts?? Anybody know a registry setting for this, or some other preference that could be reset?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ray,

    I suggest you to try updating the Display Adapter drivers check if it works for you. Follow the steps to update the Display driver:

    • Press Windows Key + X key and click Device Manager.
    • Expand ‘Display Adapters’.
    • Right-click on the Display Adapter listed and click on ‘Update Driver Software’.
    • Select the option to automatically search for the updated driver software.
    • Restart the computer after its updated and verify.
    Also try to access the computer manufacturer's website and download the latest display and chipset drivers for your computer and install the same.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
