My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I have 2 monitors, and one of them is a HP S2031 19.9".  how do I adjust the settings on the Monitor so that it will display slightly smaller (maybe by 0.5") on all sides.  This is because I have 2 monitors and this is the 2nd monitor, and whenever a program is loaded on this monitor, it is maximized out of the edges of the screen, thus I am unable to reach the 3 buttons on the top right hand corner, i.e. the minimize, etc.  
Is there any where I can get the User manual for this monitor?  Thank u.

Are you extending the 2 displays or cloning them? what is the other monitor?

If you are cloning the two displays, you must setup the resolution to use the one of the display with the lower resolution (the s2031 has a 1600x900 resolution). If you are extending the displays, you must adjust the resolution of each display to use that display's maximum resolution.

There is no mention which is your graphic card...
Every graphics card driver has a mode where you can have 2 monitors working each on their native resolution...so 1 monitor running 1920x1080 and 2nd monitor running 1600 x 900

and adjust the display size / location.. auto may work

If your graphics card is Nvidia then it has the feature DualView which sets each monitor to different resolution.
