display is short

Not a biggie but my screen has been shortened. It takes up about 85% of the width of the monitor. It's really frustrating. you change one thing and everything changes.

It's running at recommenced settings (1920x1080). I'm no longer savvy enough to know what to change.

I'm really kind of tired of dicking around at at things I no longer understand but I'm a foolish and stubborn man.

Hello noclueblue,

Double check your display's DPI settings to make sure it's set to 96 DPI (100%) to see if that may be the issue.

What is the brand & size of your monitor. We need to know the brand & model number of the monitor.

Here are the specs for you monitor: 24" - 2436V - Monitors - AOC - North America: U.S.

Some questions for you:

1) Do you have the latest video drivers installed for your graphics card?

2) What did you change that you were referring to in your first post?

3) Do you have a restore point available dated before this happened to do a system restore with?
