    Certain programs "zoomed in" after updating graphics drivers




      Answers (N/A if not applicable)


      Provide a detailed description of the issue

      I was unsatisfied with the way my (relatively) low end computer handed games, and learned that my hardware manufacturer put in a driver that limited performance of the GPU. So, I downloaded a driver that fixed this. However, certain programs, EX: Blender, are slightly zoomed in unless I go into full screen. (Zoom is subtle, except for the top. The top zoom is larger than the rest, almost like the window border covers it.)

      Please place an X to the right of the option showing how often you see this issue using specific steps. (Ex: 'Every few times a game is started it flickers.' <- This would be "Often")

      Always (100%): X (Only certain programs)

      Often (51-99%):

      Sporadic (20-50%):

      Very Sporadic (<20%):

      Hardware (HW)

      Brand and Model of the system.

      How to reproduce

      Please provide steps to replicate the issue.  These steps are very crucial to finding the root cause and fix.
      A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.

      1. Use a Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 card.
      2. Download latest driver as zip. (5/30/2017)
      3. Extract folder.
      4. Replace driver with new driver.
