You listed Lenovo, so I'm assuming that this is the manufacturer of this computer?  Please post the model of this computer.

 

Press the ALT Key and the spacebar together to open the popup menu.

Click on Size in the menu.

Press the right arrow key that points to the window border that is off the screen.  This will place the cursor at the edge of the screen which you won't be able to see since it is off the screen.

Press the left arrow key to resize the window, the edge of the window should move in the direction you’ve chosen.

Press Enter when done resizing.

You need to be sure that Windows is using the screen resolution that matches your monitor.

 

I have seen, more than once, where someone has a high-resolution monitor and uses a low-resolution pixel setting and everything ends up having something cut off on the screen.  Also go to Settings->System->Display and make sure that your "Change the size of text, apps, and other items" is at 100%, not higher, and that your resolution is set to match that of your monitor.

thanks for trying.

Well, that's often the case if one uses a high-resolution monitor.  There are a lot more pixels packed into a lot less space (per square inch) which means that the scaling of things tends to be tiny.

 

If you consistently want to be able to see everything you pretty much have to match your Windows resolution to your monitor resolution.  If you use a lower resolution what can be seen gets larger, but that means that "the edges of the window" are no longer able to fit on the screen and there is no pan and scan function to allow you to get to them.

 

You either need to acquire a lower resolution monitor or use something like a screen magnifier or, perhaps, Winareo Tweaker to tweak the sizes on your text and icons so they're large enough to be within your comfort range on your monitor when you're using the resolution settings that must be used so that everything is visible.

my screen resolution advises that i use 1080 pixels. that is what i am using. my hdtv is 1080 pixels ANd 43"

 

big. i had to make the display bigger, 175% to improve it. it used to be 150%. that is what is recommended. i

 

am using 'no squint' on my firefox. that adjusts the text and browser size. it only works on the browser.

You are misreading something.

The smallest HDTV screens have way more than 1080 pixels in even the short (vertical) direction.

1080p does not mean 1080 pixels.

_______________
_______________
Correction: 1080p Tvs do have 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution.

I was mistaking the old i & p info. My bad.

hdtv


Televisions overscan (put part of the picture off the screen so you don't see annoying edge artifacts).

Check the user manual for instructions how to deal with this when using a computer input. Commonly, it may be necessary to use one specific HDMI input, or in a menu, you might have to specify that the input you're using is a PC source. Also, as mentioned already, it might be necessary to run at native resolution, 1920x1080, and if necessary adjust text sizes to, say, 120% if the set is being used in a situation to compensate for low vision or long viewing distance for example.

Because the scaler in a TV is designed for TV program material rather than computer input, they are typically less flexible in handling the computer signals than a dedicated monitor would be.
