Problem with display resolution P51s

2019-01-05, 20:23 PM

I recently purchased a Thinkpad P51s. While experimenting with screen resolution I initially set up 1920 X 1080. I found this to be perfect. However, I next experimented with the display maximum resolution of 3840 X 2160. I found this resolution unsatisfactory and attempted to change back to the lower resolution. When I did this, the display area became only a small area in the center of an otherwise black screen. How can I repair this problem and return to the full screen of 1920 X 1080?

1. Right-click on your desktop.
2. Open Intel (R) Graphics Settings.
3. At the bottom, choose 'Display'.
4. Finally, the last option on the screen should be 'Scaling', change that to 'Scale Full Screen'.

Most likely that setting is set to 'Centered' now.
