    Windows 10 Ridiculously Large


    I upgraded to Windows 10 only to find that it ended up ridiculous large and in an awful resolution. I have Windows 10 on my laptop and it is not nearly as big. Here is a picture:

    Is there something stopping you from changing the resolution?

    My partners desktop ended up a couple times (usually after insider preview updates) being shifted down to 1024x768 resolution which made everything absurdly large but each time he would just change it back up to 1920x1080. I think there was one time it wouldn't offer him the right res but doing a restart twice and it started offering the correct options in resolution for him.

    Don't forget to update the video drivers as maybe what W10 has chosen may not be the best option.

    Windows 10 Pro,

    My Windows 10 is only about 3 gb. Of course all of the other programs bump that size up a bit.

    Suggest you get a driver update for the video card if you can't increase the resolution.

    Triple boot - Win 10 Pro, Win 10 Pro Insider (2) - (and a sprinkling of VMs)

    Sorry, not quite sure what your issue is. Right click desktop, Display Settings, and go from there. What you are showing is a cluttered mass of open windows. Can you be more specific? And, please, update your system specs. It makes giving help a lot easier if we know what your environment is.
