Display not filled vertically

  • Updated 2 months ago
I am using a Dell U2711 monitor with 2560 x 1440 native resolution. I am running Windows 10, 6400, and latest SSDR. The software fills the display fully horizontally but only 85% vertically. I thought it did fill the screen previously; I could be mistaken.

Using an Nvidia GeForce 9800 with latest driver and dual link DVI connection. 

The background image on the desktop fully fills the screen .

Any ideas out there?

Well, the problem is that when SSDR ix maximized it does not fill the screen. It is set to start maximized.

Thanks Sergey. I have a couple more things to try. I'll report back if I find anything that may be useful to others.

Hi Geoff

I just tested this and I can see the same thing on a monitor that is 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1200, so you are not crazy.  :)

It does work as expected for me on 1920 x 1080.

Let me reach out to engineering.

That's reassuring!

Thanks Mike.

I have read a bit about Windows High DPI application programming.  This may have something to do with Per-Monitor (V2) DPI Awareness.

I have the same situation with my 27" AOC 1920x1080 wide-screen monitor, SSDR does not fill in the bottom 1/2" of the screen.  I don't remember when it started, whether with a W10 upgrade or the introduction of V.2x.  Guess I've just gotten used to it.

After my comments about updating drivers, I tested opening SSDR again last night. Opened fine on my LG 34" widescreen display, but then when I minimized the window and tried to open maximize it again I ran into the same issue as Geoff. I cannot drag the program to fill the screen (about 1.5" at the bottom). I checked and the video drivers are up to date.
