What's new

Desktop space bigger than screen


New Member
Hello. I have a problem that has been going on for about 2 weeks and cannot find a solution. I have windows 8.1 and after I have my surface on for a while I notice that my metro icons grow in size and I cannot access any of the menus on the corners. When I switch to desktop I have the same problem. It is like the display area is bigger than the display. I checked the resolution and it is where it should be. When this happens the only way I can get it back to normal is to hard boot. This happens 99% of the time usually after being on for 15 minutes. Very annoying. Any help would be much appreciated.

That has to be one of the weirdest things.. I reckon' you've tried to pinch to zoom out in metro or something like that?
Watch this from the beginning:


the custom sizing options seem to be helpful.
