windows only showing in tiny portion of the screen

Hi all im having an issue with my monitor that has just started today and i have no clue why. for some reason it shows the windows desktop only in a small section of the centre of the screen. Basically its not in fullscreen in a way. See image below for a better look. Its not doing it on either of my other 2 monitors either but idk what to do. the first thing i did was try to change res in settings back to its native 4k, that did put it back in fullscreen however i like to run all my monitors at the same res. over the last few months/ yr its ran fine at 1080p but now today has just decided not to. Thanks in advance to anybody who can help1928271895_sketch-16190161573181.thumb.png.18cde4ee36ff6cc82cd024aceb088180.png71529997_sketch-16190161120581.thumb.jpg.ea5d3e1c4e89f6dc984e6dd197c510b8.jpg618938174_sketch-16190164120851.thumb.jpg.b8e1587969829fae0f794affcae0273e.jpg

Right click the desktop > Display settings > Select higher resolution if available, and IDK exactly where the setting is, but you can select "stretch" instead of "center."

I'm sorry, he has already done most of this. If you want to run at the same resolution both monitors, you need to stretch. But is there any reason why you wouldn't want it running at full resolution all the time?

Your RTX 3070 can handle triple monitors easy peasy, even if two are 4k. It can be a little bit difficult to select a single monitor when you launch a game.

 

I see no reason to not go for triple monitor at full res across all three.

Either set the monitor to stretch in its OSD menu, or run it at 4K from Windows with 200% scaling and you'll have the same size UI elements as in 1080p, just with higher resolution.
