What is the native resolution for your screen and what is it set on?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It is a 23 inches monitor and it is set at 1400 X 900. I ddn't want to set it higher although it can take much higher resolution.

I assume that is less than the native resolution (which would be the normal setting)?

If the games are ancient then you could try DOS box.

Otherwise I can't see any way around this without increasing the screen resolution when you run those particular games.

I'm a bit surprised if you are running them directly in Win 10 that they are too large.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Well that is exactly my point...It is like as if I was looking at my game thru some binoculars and I was only able to see the center of the interface... So annoying...

And the recommended resolution for my monitor is 1680 X 1050.

No, I didn't need any of those utilities. Mine is a Intel(R) Q35Express Chipset Family (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM 1.0) That is what is says in the device manager under Display adapter...

Have you tried the Intel Auto detect, to make sure you have the correct drivers?
