    64-bit Windows 10

    Hello Theo,

    Did it get smaller or larger?

    Is this for everything, or something specific?

    For now, double check your screen resolution settings to make sure it's set to the native resolution for your display. If need be, you could boot into Safe Mode to be able to see to set this.

    Hope this helps for now,

    I had to change my nvidia settings to underscan and adjust my desktop to make it fit my resolution. Are you using a tv set as a monitor?
