    If it is when you are in the internet browser, adjust it from the view tab, else look at settings in display.
  2. no it is the entire screen
  3. What is your resolution set to on the PC? Does your monitor have any size adjustment settings in its menu?
  4. THeres a few things you could try:

    1 You might be able to set the resolution via the menu integrated into the monitor.

    2 Assuming you have a windows based pc, I would go to start -> control panel -> Display . From there you can adjust the screen resolution.

    3 Another option is the software utility that comes with a graphics card. You can also go in there and set the resolution or resize the desktop to your liking.

    when i go in the resolution it only has default screen and when i adjust the screen it just makes the items smaller or larger not the screen

    I have a nVidia graphics card and all I needed to do to change the screen size itself was go in the graphics card settings, go to 'Adjust desktop size and position' and change perform scaling. 'GPU' scales the screen from the graphics card and 'Display' scales the screen to the monitor size.

    This literally took me about 5 minutes to figure out, if you have a different graphics card, go to your graphics cards settings and have a little play round, there should be a 'Return to Defaults' button somewhere if things go a bit wrong.

    IF you still need any more help I would recommend going to your graphics card manufacturers website and contact the help line from there.

    I hope I helped :D
  7. Sorry for bumping this in 2013 but I had the issue and found my solution.

    The computer had an AMD HD 7xxx card. The resolution was set at 1920x1080 on both the monitor options and Windows resolution but still the image didn't use the entire monitor area.

    The solution is in the Catalyst driver options at :
    My digital flat panel
    scaling options
    move the slider.
    if it's not available, play with options in the My digital flat panel - Properties


    Hope this helps

    Thank you SO much, I switched my DVI cable for a HDMI cable and everything went wrong... I have an AMD Radeon DD GHZ edition R7870 (pretty long damn name) and couldn't figure it out. This worked perfectly, so thank you.
  13. Thank you very much that helped me a lot. I have a different AMD Card then yours but it worked fine for me.

    This worked in Windows 8 but now that I've upgraded to windows 8.1 my Catalyst Control Center is different and does not have the scaling tab or option. Any advice?

    You're awesome! I'm not OP, but I found this thread while looking to solve the same issue, and your solution worked perfectly. Thank you!
  16. Go to control panel, adjust screen resolution, and play around with that until you find one that fits your monitor. Also a more advanced option you can do if you have an AMD GPU is pull up AMD Catalyst Cneter (hopefully you have it) and it should be somewhere near desktop settings. You can control more then just your size with that.
  17. This happened to me and it wasn't the screen resolution at all. I right-clicked the monitor, selected graphics options, full screen. Fixed it.
