    Display setting causes full screen games to be cropped out


    I have the "Change the size of text, apps, and other items:" set to 150% since the font size are a bit small at 100% (recommended). But whenever I launch a game that's in full screen, it crops the game from the top left corner, only showing a portion of the game. setting it back to 100% seems to fix the view of the game but I really can't work with 100%, everything is so small. Is there any way to fix this without changing back to 100%?

    You could just change the font size if that is the only thing you are worried about being a bit small ..
    go to Control Panel / Appearance and Personalization / Display and it should say " Change size of items " and " Change only size of Text Size" .. at that point, you should be able to change the font size.

    I would recommend going back to 100% recommended if this solves your problem in terms of the font size and changing it back to 100% should solve your game issue as well.

    Simple answer: Reduce your screen resolution. That will make everything appear larger and you won't get the clipping.

    Ya... I guess that is the best solution. Thanks.
