Your resolution is wrong for the screen size, right click on the desktop in a free area, scroll down to either properties or resolution and left click to open that window. You will have to play around with the settings at this point to get the screen comfortable for your wishes. Usually widescreens like a resolution of 1440 X 900 or if you have a good graphics card...1680 X 1050. Plat around with the settings until you are comfortable with one and then hit apply these settings. It will ask you to confirm by clicking yes and that is it.
