    New Monitor Pushes MS Word Screen to the Left


    Hello everyone. Iím running Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 on Windows 8.1 Preview.

    Yesterday, I had to purchase a new desktop PC monitor. Itís a Samsung S22C300H if that helps.

    The resolution is higher than my previous monitor. As a result, when I open Microsoft Word and have it display in Print Layout mode, the page has shifted from the center of the screen to the far left.

    (The resolution on the new monitor is 1920 x 1080.)

    Honestly, the change has literally made me nauseous! Iíve been used to the page being in the center of the screen for the past 20 years!

    Iíve lowered the resolution, which did center the page in Word, but the resolution is nowhere near as sharp as the high resolution mode.

    Is there a way to get the Print Layout page in Word to be centered on the screen in this high resolution? If so, what is the procedure? Thank you! Jd

    After posting this message, I figured out the workaround that is mentioned in that post. However, I have to set my zoom to 120%.

    The type is still a bit large for me, compared to what I'm used to, but I can get used to that a LOT more easily than getting used to the screen shifting to the left.

    I also discovered the same problem arose with Libre Office Writer. And the magic number for that was 120 as well!
