    Windows 10, screen resolution problem with 2 screens

    Hi, Couldn't find a solution for my problem in the other posts so here it goes.

    Currently I'm using 2 screens for my pc, one is a regular screen and the other one a 46'' LG TV. They both are running with a 1920x1080 resolution, which appears as native in both of them.

    The regular screen has no problems, but the tv screen appears like it's running a lower resolution (Since its real size is at least 2 times bigger). Even when I move a page from the screen to the tv, the page is bigger than the screen so I loose part of the bottom. as you can see in this image, where the settings window practically covers the whole window when it's way smaller in the other screen)

    (The tv is above the regular screen)

    I don't remember how it worked with windows 7 to be honest, but I believe I used a bigger resolution like 2560x1440, which I can't here, since it finds 1920x1080 as the native and bigger resolution for the tv. So the question is, how do I increase its max resolution or there is another solution to match them both

    I know this is an old post, but since no one else answered it, I thought I would (for future reference).

    Televisions do something called overscan, which makes the picture larger than the visible screen. This is from the way-back-when days when CRT screens had rounded edges and pictures had straight edges. It was done to fill the whole screen, and even though those screens have gone the way of the dinosaur, the practice still continues.

    To fix that you need to do one of two things.

    1. Look in your TV settings menu for a way to disable overscan. Unfortunately it's not always called that (Sony called it Full Pixel mode, others called it 1:1 pixel mapping, etc.) so you may have to do a little hunting to find the correct setting. Most 1080p sets have it, somewhere (most 720p sets do not).

    2. If you can't disable overscan, then look in your graphics driver setting for a way to scale the picture down to fit the visible screen.

    Also, some televisions have one input that is PC specific, and that input should have overscan disabled.
