Can't adjust picture size to fit monitor
Posted on 2011-09-12
I have a Samsung P2770HD monitor - at the only screen resolution that looks decent (the recommended screen resolution of 1920 X 1080) the picture (no matter the source - any application window, as well as the Windows Desktop) is about .5" too high, so either the program's title bar, or the status bar at the bottom (or the Windows task bar), or both, are not visible. As a practical matter this means that I can only close maximized applications via task manager, because their close buttons are off the screen. I called Samsung tech support but they were of no help at all. On the old CRT monitors there was a picture size setting that allowed you to control the raster height, but there doesn't seem to be a comparable capability for LCD screens. Frequently, but not always, the windows task bar becomes invisible leaving no way to access any of the Start button functions. Is there a solution to this?
