How come my new monitor only displays my desktop on part of the screen?

by on June 16, 2012

Q: I purchased a wide screen monitor. Its considerable larger than my old one which was 14″. The new one is only displaying in the 14′ mode. Is there any way it can be made larger, full screen? The new monitor is 23′. If it cant, than whats the point of a larger screen. Im computer illiritate but am learning fast.

    Are you running Microsoft windows?

    If so what version? Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7?
