  1. Screen Size After Sleep

    When my computer goes to sleep and then I wake it up, the screen size is bigger than the monitor. So, I can't see my taskbar at the bottom, some of the icons are off the screen, and my start menu is barely on the screen. I can't just simply hit ESC. I have to Restart the computer, sign in, and then everything is okay.

    How do I change the display settings for this?

    Poll: Desktop Screen Size

    This goes along with my Desktop Screen Res poll. A lot of people have been posting their monitor size in addition to voting in the poll, but I wanted to make an actual poll to put the screen size votes in a more easily readable format.

    This is for desktop systems, not laptops. I've tried to include all screen sizes that people are likely to have; if yours is not listed, round up. If you have multiple, different-sized screens, check all that apply. I've also listed projectors as an option.

    I didn't list individual sizes over 32" as these are typically not intended as PC monitors; just select "Larger."
  3. Screen size does not fix.

    Since the new upgrades the screen size is too big for my 7 YR old Toshiba Laptop, which I use constantly. I Can not access the x or the scroll bar. The character's are Hugh, stretched and distorted. I have followed every single step listed in troubleshooting
    and even paid two computer techs to fix it. NOTHING WORKS! There used to be a simple one step adjustment: Settings: Display: Screen Size. Neither, Resetting, troubleshooting app, driver updates, changing to another resolution (which btw is suggested as a
    fix but non existant) nothing works. I am at wits end. The last guy I paid to fix it suggested I just buy anew unit? I can't afford that. Please please address this issue asap. Thank you

    Hi Al,

    You can disable screen sleep by configuring the Power Settings. To configure the Power Settings, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Choose System.
    • Select Power & Sleep.
    • Under Sleep, select Never from the drop-down menu.
