    - In the Start menu search or in the Cortana taskbar search, type display (or display settings). Windows 10 users may also right-click the desktop and choose Display Settings.
    - Move the slider to 100% or select "Smaller - 100%" and click Apply.
    - Log out and log in to Windows or reboot the computer.
