Our projector cannot display the full window (from the VGA signal) to the screen

But we dont want to move the projector

Is there a software we can zoom out/ adjust the picture size and angle on the pc, and set the output size smaller? (like many monitor do)

Watch Question

Usually, driver has ability to modify their border. You can adjust size, and positioning with the driver.

I would check if the projector itself has this feature in one of its options.
I think that projector SHOULD have this option, but that won't remove the cropping. It will zoom the image, including its crops

I have seen 1024x768 native projectors which can display an 800x600 image in the center with a thick black border.  In other words, feeding the projector a resolution lower than the native resolution might work.


The electrician didn't install it in right place

I ve already set the zoom/position  on the peojector, but 10% area still can't be displayed

and that projector seems don't support letter box mode. even the resolution is 800x600, it is still full screen.

mmm...........so I think there might be a software to adjust the video output
Yes... there IS a software. Your driver.
