How do I move my screen image a few pixels to the left? I have a new monitor. My screen image has a thin blank/black space on the left, and on the right it is just enough off the screen that I see only half the X in the upper right corner for closing the screen. My up/down scroll column on the right is just a sliver that I can just touch with the curser to use. The adjustment buttons on the frame of the monitor are a mystery.

Scaling The scaling controls let you adjust the size of the desktop to best fit your screen. The configuration that you specify may be overridden by the settings in the Resize section.

Select a scaling mode

Aspect ratio: This setting expands the desktop as much as possible while maintaining the same dimensional proportions, or aspect ratio, as the original image. There may be some black borders, but you may prefer this setting to avoid distorting the image.
Full-screen: This setting stretches the desktop to fill the entire display screen.
No scaling: This setting leaves the display image in its original size and centres it on your screen resulting in a small though crisp image. A black border may appear around the display image.

Perform Scaling on

GPU: This causes the GPU to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.
Automatic: This setting uses a combination of display and GPU scaling to scale the desktop from the set resolution up to the native resolution timing.

Override the scaling mode set by games and programs

When this check box is checked, applications cannot change the scaling mode set on this page.


Under the Preview section you can select a resolution and refresh rate, and then the preview image shows how full-screen applications will appear on the screen, using the selected scaling configuration. The available refresh rates will depend on the scaling method selected.
Resize Some displays, such as HDTVs, extend the edges of the display beyond the visible borders of the screen. This overscan is intended to hide broadcast data that is not intended for the viewer. This results in hiding useful parts of the screen for non-broadcast content, such as the Windows desktop.
The best way to resize the screen in order to view the entire content is to use the controls provided by the display hardware.
The resize controls on the NVIDIA Control Panel are provided in case satisfactory results cannot be achieved using the controls on the display.
Position Use the arrow buttons in the image under Adjust the desktop position to adjust the position of your desktop or image on your screen.
