    Just installed Windows 8 and my screen is larger than my monitor. Went into display but couldn't find a fix and I'm using the recommended settings for my monitor.

    How do I make the screen narrower?

    Make sure you have your latest graphics drivers, maybe that might fix your issue. Also try to run Windows Update to get the latest troubleshooting packs.

    By larger, what exactly do you mean. It is not unusual to find your Windows 8 Start Screen is Wider than your monitor and might require some scrolling left and right.
    Do you mean all screens (like notepad, wordpad, etc.)?
    Do you mean vertically, or horizontally, or both?

    Can you print that, so I can see?

    Have you already tried out to maximize your screen resolution?
