1920x1200 no longer fills screen

Hi there,

Before I installed DF, if I set my main monitor to 1920x1200 resolution, the desktop would fill the display. I'm using a Dell 3007 and an nVidia GTX 580. The Dell has native resolutions of 1280x800 and 2560x1600, but I guess the nVidia card scales the desktop to fit at other resolutions.

Unfortunately, with DF installed, if I put my main monitor in 1920x1200, the desktop fills only half or 2/3 of the display area -- it's not scaling to fit the larger area of the monitor. I don't see an option in nVidia control panel to fix this. Is there an option in DF that addresses it? If not, it's a deal-killer for me, because I use that resolution all the time -- or at least I used to.

Thanks.

Anyone have any suggestions? Other than uninstalling DF?

Is it your desktop or your wallpaper image that isn't filling the screen completely? If it's the wallpaper image, give Beta 9 a try, it fixes a number of wallpaper-related issues. If it's desktop scaling that's the issue, DisplayFusion doesn't have the ability to adjust that, I'm not sure what the cause could be. Are you able to use the nVidia tools to adjust the overscan?

It's not the wallpaper, it's desktop scaling. The wallpaper looks fine. But the 1920x1200 screen fills only 2/3 of my monitor screen, if that. It used to scale fine before I plugged in a second monitor and started using DF. I'm not sure if the issue is DF or the second monitor, but I effectively can no longer use 1920 resolution.

It doesn't sound like DisplayFusion would be causing the issue, as it doesn't adjust any desktop scaling settings. As a test, if you close or uninstall DisplayFusion, does the issue still occur?

Also, you should be able to adjust the scaling/resizing in the NVIDIA Control Panel under the Display > Adjust Desktop Size and Position section. See the attached screenshot for reference.

Hope that helps!
