    Windows 10 not filling the screen on my monitor?


    Can anyone tell me how to get Windows 10 to give me a full screen view?
    I have set the resolution to 1920 by 1080 the same as my monitor but the image doesn't fill my screen.

    I tried to make a screen shot but of course it only covers the area that's shown, so it doesn't do much good. LOL

    Any way I have about a black border 1" on the bottom and top, 2" on the ends, around the outside of the Windows, window, on my monitor

    You need to download the display drivers, my nvidia ones came from windows update.
