How do I reduce it by 1/2 an inch all round

what resolution are you using?

right click a space on the desktop - display settings - change your resolution until it fits the screen.

I am using the Recommended Resolution which is 1920 x 1080

I have trued your suggestion of 1680 x 1050 and it appears to work but that is not the resolution suggested by the Manual.

I'll get used to it. Thanks

It's not as crisp

It's not the resolution setting - You need to go into the graphics card properties, example: NVIDIA Control Panel (right click on Desktop), and select the Adjust desktop size and position option click here

Lotvic. I had previously tried to do what Brink suggested. Unfortunately it only moves the screen position, to left or right, up or down, it does not appear shrink the screen, and I was not able to find anyway of reducing the size of the Window.

According to Acer, the Native Resolution is 1920 x 1080, but this produces a picture that is about 5mm larger, all round, than the Screen

If you have an AMD card check if you have scaling mode. This adjusts the over and underscan issue. Link.

Your graphics card software usually includes a scaling function where you can increase or decrease the size of the display area without changing the resolution.

I have tried the Nvidia Scaling Function for the 'window to fit the screen', there are 3 options. but it seems to make no difference.

I shall try other options
