Windows 10: It is as though my screen is too small for Windows 10

    It is as though my screen is too small for Windows 10


    I've just upgraded to Windows 10 and a bug is driving me crazy:

    The screen is eating up into *some* of the screen.

    When I got to my computer this morning, this is what I found:

    At the bottom-left and top-right, see how the screen content is being eaten into by the edge of the screen?

    And once I am logged-in, this is what I get:

    See how, at the top-right, the time is being eaten by the edge of the screen?

    Its not the entire right-hand side. It is just the top-right.

    My observations are as follows

    1. Resolution can't be the issue. I'm using a Dell XPS-12 and my resolution is set to 1920 x 1080 (Recommended). If resolution was the issue, the edge of the screen would eat into everything, including the browser. But it's not, it is only eating into the time at the top-right.

    2. I tried reducing the number of items in the tray, but that didn't help.

    3. Closing Outlook seems to bring the time back into view (as per this screenshot):

    4. Whether Outlook is open or closed, going back to the login screen seems to be fine and nothing is being eaten into:

    Someone... somewhere... whoever you are... wherever you are... please help me...

    For someone who has gotten used to keeping track of the time through the tray, not seeing the time is unbearable.

    Thanks

    Update: The issue is not specific to Outlook as there have been time where the entire time has showed properly even though Outlook was open.

    To me somehow point to video card or monitor, since Windows 10 is new to me like many hard to say yet if it's a setting there.
    Updated video card drivers, try reinstalling again. Actually had to make sure go to manufacturer's site and get all Windows 10 updated drivers.

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    Although I may sound like a techy, I really have no idea how to do any of what you've suggested.

    Do you have any resources you can point me to to help me along?

    Thanks
