    Screen too Big!


    My laptop is connected to my HD TV via an HDTV cable. But the blown-up screen encroaches beyond the 42"HD frame, so I have a difficult time scrolling, getting to the bottom and top bars. I want to settings and display, but I couldn't figure out how to shrink the screen enough to do the things you want to do...I need a STEP-BY-STEP instruction on how to do it.

    :)

  2. Screen Resolution too big

    Hello,

    Firstly, try to install all the available Windows Updates and check if it fixes the issue.

    I suggest you to change the screen resolution settings and check if it fixes the issue. Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key and type Change Screen Resolution and click on the option listed.
    • Under resolution try changing the resolution settings.

    Also try to install the latest drivers from the manufacturer website and check.

    Hope this will fix the issue, if not let us know with the updated status and we will be happy to assist you further.

  3. Screen Size Is Too Big

    I figured it out. My computer had updated and somehow the screen resolution on my monitor had changed. I changed the screen size to "fit to screen" and that worked.

    When I tried to answer the questions posed by the one trying to help me, the email came back with a 'bad address'. I tried it again and had the same result.

    Ok, this is a simple fix, well as you know... you CANNOT see the windows square icon on the bottom left of your tv, but just go all the way to the far left corner of your tv and right click, then the list window appears but barely.
    Click on Control Panel
    Under Appearance and Personalization click on Adjust screen resolution
    Now click on Multiple Displays:
    Select "Duplicate these Displays"
    Click Apply at the bottom of page.
    YOUR DONE

    Screen too Big!

    Be sure to change the second screen's resolution to something suitable for r TV, HD res should be fine.

    I appreciate your trying to help, but when I saw Multiple Displays or Duplicate These Displays, neither of which could be clicked, while Apply was also greyed out. Another avenue, on another attempt to change the
    size, including Advanced Settings, for example, I clicked on Magnifier,
    which only gave me the option of INCREASING the screen, not shrinking it.
    Many options, but none works...
