I was working on my MIL's laptop over the weekend, and she was having problems with games on Windows 10. She's running a Yoga 2 Pro, and launching full screen games requires a resolution change. The game would launch, and be running normally, but attempting to give it focus would always drop you back into the desktop.
After doing some research, it's a remaining bug from the beta. Resolution changes causes the start menu to steal focus, which causes you to drop down into the desktop. Alt tabbing into the game repeats the cycle. The games (in this case) were not crashing, just unable to display.
With the latest Windows 10 update I can't play any game in full screen. As soon as I open the game my screen goes black and it tabs out to the desktop. Putting it in 1920x1080 (monitor size) won't work, because my pc isn't good enough to handle it.
I have tried reinstalling drivers two times and I got no luck I'm stuck with 1600x1200 resolution but one thing worries me it seems like drivers think my card is HD8670 or 7900 series instead of R280x. How to solve this and get full hd resolution?
Since upgrading to Windows 10 from 7, I ran into the same issue as [URL] ....
So I tried the catalyst scaling option for my desktop and this seemed to fix the issue for mostly everything, desktop and most games, However, the problem still seems to arise with some games I try to play, such as Xcom Enemy Within or Dawn of War 2. Changing resolution in these games doesn't appear to have any effect, the image is still falling off the screen, I use my desktop on a 32 inch TV as opposed to a monitor via HDMI, and keep it set to 1600x900 as opposed to its native 1920x10180, but even leaving it at 1920 has the same effect.
I have my specs on a dxdiag file, dunno where to upload it here, but I'm using a AMD Radeon R9 200 Series on an Asus I built.
While viewing a thread here, the forum went from perfect visual clarity to a washed out appearance. The most obvious example is on any given topic page where the listed threads I have viewed are a lighter shade of blue and unread ones are bold blue. Now the bold is 2-3 shades lighter and the lighter blue ones are just easily discernible but washed out looking.
I recently upgraded to Windows 10 on my desktop (upgraded from Windows 7, activated and then did a clean install) and ever since I've been encountering an odd issue:
Every time I reboot the PC, the resolution changes from 1600x900 to 1024x768. This happens after both restarting and shutting down. Every time Windows boots, it resets the resolution.
My specs are as follows:
CPU - Intel Xeon X3220 (OCed to 3.2GHZ) RAM - 8GB DDR2-800 MOBO - Gigabyte EP45-UD3R GPU - XFX Radeon HD6870 (Using latest drivers) OS - Windows 10 Pro
how to fix it? Once I'm logged on, I can change the resolution back fine, and games run fine too, so it's definitely detecting my card properly and using the Radeon drivers
I must say, I'm a bit disappointed with Windows 10... Under Win 7 everything worked flawlessly, whereas under 10 I get loads of these small issues that make the experience particularly frustrating. Chief among them is the fact that Windows 10 is slow as anything - a fresh install takes longer to boot than my year old Windows 7 install did, and just generally feels less responsive than 7 did.
I recently got a new computer after my old one crashed. i installed my old 750 ti that was in the last computer and updated the drivers. I plugged it into the same 4k tv my last computer was hooked up to. However, when i try to switch to 4k resolution (3840x2160p) I am met with a black screen until it switches back to 1080p.

We installed windows 10 on our desk top computer from direct download. once everything was completed. The resolution on monitor is stuck on 800x600 and the desktop is compacted in the middle of the screen. The monitor is 19 or 20 inches, but nevertheless the desktop is about an inch and half smaller on each end of monitor. We were able to change through settings icon size, but still left with compacted screen.
Okay so I updated from windows 7 to windows 10 i have these black bars around my screen instead of a full screen so I tried changing the resolution because it was set to 800x600 so I change it to 1920x1080.
The monitor is connected to the computer via HDMI and we can see Windows on the screen but Windows sprawls beyond the physical edges of the screen in every direction. That means we see only the top little bit of the task bar and the Windows button is beyondn the left edge of the screen and the clock is beyond the right edge of the screen. I've tried a few different screen resolutions but the image ALWAYS sprawls so that all four edges are lost. What do I need to do so that this sprawling stops?
This has only started happening recently - every few boots, the screen choice between Windows 10 and XP appears with the wrong resolution. The image is small on the screen. If I select Windows 10, the full boot sequence continues with that resolution. However, if I select 'Advanced options' and then 'Continue to Windows 10', the resolution changes to the correct format.
A week or so back, I went back to a previous set point and that seemed to cure the problem. Then it returned.
I wanted to run some games on 1024x768 but i had black bars i fixed that problem by selecting 1024x768 resolution and scaling to full screen. But i want to know if there is a way to change the resolution to 1024x768 when the game opens instead of doing it manually and when the game closes the resolution goes back to normal which is 1366x768.
I note in the screenshots that there is an option in W10 marked 'Use full screen start when in the desktop'. This seems puzzling to me, as I will want to use the full screen start when on the start screen (of course) but obviously I won't want a full screen start when running the Desktop app. Is it possible to use the start menu when running the Desktop app and still have the full start screen presented when I close it/switch away from it? Much like Win8 (only with the new and improved start menu of course) where I right click on the Windows logo icon to get the start menu and left click it to return to the start screen?
I have inserted shortcut into startup listing but can't find the way to make it open full screen (app is XBMC/KODI). It opens after boot automatically but still has the task bar at the bottom and title bar at the top - not a good way to watch a movie.
I have two hidden object games that has a screen that is to large and some of the objects are out of site on the sides. I tried setting the resolution smaller, but that just made the screen smaller and objects are still hidden. When I remove the check mark from full screen, the screen is to small to find the hidden objects. The game worked fine on my 19" monitor, but not this larger one.
Two week ago I upgraded to windows 10 and immediately installed a new SanDisk Extreme Pro SSD Drive. All is working fine with the exception of Netflix that freezes avery minute or so in medium and full screen, (works ok in minimized screen).
I understand Netflix needs "Silverlight" to function which is supposedly supported by Windows 10 but not by Windows Edge. I've tried running Netflix on Explorer but still have the same problem.
In Windows 8.1, if I split my display in half - I could have multiple apps like Internet Explorer and Visual Basic open. Then if I was watching a video on YouTube in full screen mode, the video would still only be displayed in the half of the screen so I could still multitask and do something else in the other half. However if I try to do this in Windows 10, the YouTube video in full screen mode does actually put the video in full screen and takes up the whole display. Is it possible to just get it to display in half of the screen like in Windows 8.1 or is this not yet possible? Was a really handy feature!!
I have a gigabyte MB with on-board graphics, 1 vga and 1 DVI as outputs.
I have 2 new asus monitors with 1 vga input and 2 hdmi inputs.
The vga to vga connection to monitor 1 produces full screen on 1920x1080 (recommended)
Asus furnished a cable DVI to HDMI. This connection (monitor 2) leaves about 1/2 inch blank space on either side and about 1/4 inch top and bottom. 1920x1080 (recommended). 1280x1024 setting fills the screen, but display looks stretched.
