Solved how to center monitor display

August 6, 2013 at 06:58:28
Specs: Windows 7
my monitor display is off to the right. I have windows 8. I tried the settings window and have looked for button to move screen to right or left. I originally had bing only for searching. now when I hit the explorer button I get msn. also, I somehow added the chrome browser. I don't know if any of this is relevant... all I want is center the display again.

✔ Best Answer
Try doing an auto-adjust on your monitor. Its normally on the monitor main menu (from the buttons on the monitor itself).. If you can provide the monitor model, can get detailed instructions on how to accomplish.

Also, refresh your display via resolution. Go to your desktop > right click in any open area on the desktop > Screen Resolution > Resolution

Scale one down, hit apply, and then scale back up (to recommended resolution) and hit apply.

Hi pbreuer45,

Let us know the monitor model so that we can help you.

You may try resetting the monitor to factory default using the buttons on the monitor.

For internet explorer, change the Bind as the homepage and default search engine using the link mentioned below:

Are there any controls on the monitor itself?

You've mentioned Bing and Chrome. Does this screen shift only apply when using these browsers, or is it the same on the desktop for example?

"I somehow added the chrome browser"
Take greater care or you might get a virus somehow, if you haven't already.

EDIT:
Oops I overlapped - there were no responses when I started my reply.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

More than likely you installed a program & just clicked next, next, next, without reading what was on the screen. Chrome was probably bundled with whatever it was you installed & MSN was offered as the new home page. All you had to do was untick the boxes during the software installation. Now you'll have to undo what you did.
