    second screen resolution problem

    einserpasch Level 1

      hello everybody.

      i hope someone can give me a hint how to solve this problem:

      i am using win 8.1 and lightroom 5.7.

      i have a laptop with an amd radeon hd 8800m grafic card. and a second display attatched.

      my laptop has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 px and my second screen can display 2560 x 1440 px.

      on my second (big) screen i am having my main window of lightroom and on my laptop monitor i like to display an additional grid-view of my library.

      but for some reasons lightroom only recognises 1600 x 900 px of my laptop monitor.

      so when i am displaying my library in full screen mode it looks like this (the laptop display on the right):



      weired, right? remember: this is not a window. it's full screen.


      when im reducing my resolution to 1600 x 900 px everything looks ok but i don't like this solution...


      i don't know if its a lightroom problem or a windows problem.

      but sure enough it's a problem...


      sometimes i managed i trick my computer by reducing the resolution and enlarging it back again. it worked two times but when i do it now it doesn't work anymore...

      and the problem doesn't occur, when i am having the main window on my laptop and the additional full screen window on my large monitor. there everything works perfect.


      hope anyone can help me!

      best wishes,
