Windows 7: Windows slightly too large for my tv

My television and my monitor both have the same maximum resolution.

If you extend your desktop to the TV, rather than duplicate it, other options may become available.

I don't want it extended. That makes things too complicated. I use both monitors for the same things. Too much dragging and switching with extended monitors.

Close the lid then and use the TV as primary monitor, keep it simple.

What a waste of a TV.
Did you check your TV settings as suggested by Theveterans--Specifically, View Mode?

I don't know what lid needs to be closed, but they both need to be the primary monitor. I use them both equally.

I didn't see a view mode anywhere.

If you choose the duplicate display mode on display control panel or the Nvidia control panel and both the TV and the monitor has the same native resolution, I'm very positive that the proble is the "view mode" of your TV. Check your TV manual to see what type of "view mode" it has. Normally most TVs have "Zoom", "Wide or Stretch" "Normal or Standard" and for Sharp TVs: "Dot by Dot." I am not familiar with other TVs than Sharp so try to find a view mode on TV that says something like pixel to pixel display so that no overscan can happen and you see that the Windows desktop will perfectly fit the TV screen.

The manual is ridiculously inadequate. It didn't even explain how to use the edit channels feature. I had to spend about 20 minutes trying to figure that out with the remote. But I have been through every feature that the remote will show me, and haven't seen anything like that view mode. I am at work until 5 a.m., I will look again when I get home.

The view mode has to be there unless you're TV is like 8 years ago (CRT) or something. Anyways, I'm sure you'll find it. It may not be called view mode in your TV remote though. I know some manufacturers call them "Format" or something like that. I'd start with the video settings of your TV and look for advanced settings if there's one.

I think I saw a game mode ino the format section. Maybe that could be it.
