    Yesterday I upgraded my wife's Hp Pavilion 6720 to windows 10 from windows 7 Home Premium. She plays a lot of offline games on it. On a few from "Bitwise" (Pocket Tanks, Super DX Ball to name a couple), her monitor is showing only about half of screen and is showing very large. I've tried going to her control panel and checking how I can make her views smaller, but I can't find the area I need to be in. Everything else seems to be okay. Can anyone help??

    Do you actually have a HP Pavilion p6720f Desktop PC (BV532AA) which came with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and has ATI Radeon 4200 integrated graphics, or do you have a different model desktop?
    What's the description of the monitor and its native resolution?

    According to the driver downloads section for that desktop, no Windows 10 drivers are provided for it.
    That means you're at the mercy of Windows 10 and Microsoft providing drivers for its graphics device and other devices.
    It's my guess the graphics device is running in default VGA mode and isn't able to provide the necessary resolution setting for the monitor.
