Windows 10: Can not change the screen size on my monitor. Solved

    Can not change the screen size on my monitor.


    For some reason I can't seem to figure out I can not change the size of the screen on my monitor. I have tried everything in personalization and display settings. Nothing is working. I have looked online and can not find answers there either. If anyone has any advise it would be very helpful.

    I don't know if bullet's issue was resolved, but I'm having a similar problem after installing Windows 10 today. I have no options beyond 1280 x 1024 on my 21" monitor, so I'm stuck with about 1" black bars on the top and bottom, and 1.5" on either side. This is irritating because it was fine on Windows 7 before I ran the install.

    Please help.

    You know, I wish I could say I had thought of that. Done now and it looks great. Thank you for reminding me of what should have been obvious.
