Screen Resolution Problems

Hi

I am having problems with my screen resolution.
The recommended screen resolution for my screen is 1920 x 1080 but when I use this some of the icons on my desktop disappear off the left of the screen.
Is there away to fix this or do I have to use a lower screen resolution?

Welcome to SF!

What Graphics driver version do you have installed?

There is supposed to be a Scaling Option in the Control Center but I can't find it
That would be a solution for you, though.

What happens if you hit the 'Auto Adjust' button on your monitor?
