Windows 10: Scaling desktop to fit the screen

    Scaling desktop to fit the screen

    I'm running an older video-card (radeon 4850) in Windows 10. The card has support for Win7 & barely Win8.

    So, is there a small software program that could let me scale the desktop to fit the screen in Win10..?

    Is the screen resolution not correct for your monitor?

    I recommend this article

    You just need to follow the steps for it in Windows 10.

    Control Panel [if you can't see it] can be accessed by pressing [WIN] + R and typing 'control.exe'

    Yes it is. It's a 24" monitor, 16:9 ratio, set at 1920 by 1080. AMD doesn't support this video-card in Win10...:-(

    Can you try using older drivers win 8.1 compatible. You can try installing using compatibility mode.

    I have tried compatibility mode and as as administrator, but no success.

    Try older drivers. Does windows finds any drivers by itself ?

    I've tried drivers for that card from Win7, vista, 8, 8.1. In device manager it sees it as a 4850 like it should. But Microsoft doesn't make a driver for it, nor through update-drivers option.

    Solved the problem by getting a used nVidia 8600 GTS video-card. Windows 10 recognizes it, so I can scale the desktop to fit the two Panasonic 32-inch screens.
