    Windows 10

    Black Bar top


    I am having an issue, I have a W10 machine where the default resolution is 2560 x 1600 but when I go to 1920 x1080 this happens:

    A black bar is across the top and blocks any view, any ideas?

    2560x1600 is 16:10 and 1920x1080 is 16:9.
    So when you set the non-recommended resolution, it is cutting that one unit of display height.

    It is not an issue, apparently.

    Thank you so much for that clarification, this is on a virtual monitor, so i need to plug in a native 1080p monitor so it changes back to 16:9 ?

    Well, actually I have never used Virtual Monitors, but If you go to Control Panel > Display > Adjust Resolution, there should be an appropriate resolution for your virtual monitor.
