If you're using a flatscreen monitor (not a Laptop), its own controls may let you "squash" the picture height to produce the effect in your diagram, although the image will necessarily be distorted.

Flatscreen monitors have an optimal native setting for resolution and refresh rate. Any departure from this can have unpredictable results, possibly being unable to display anything and with an "out of range" error message.
