    I just bought a new windows 8 machine and after installing classic client I can no longer get my game screen to stack right on monitor.

    I cant seem to get my old screen set-up.

    I have always been able to run UO with it filling approx 3/4 of my screen (just a nice little black border on bottom and right side for icons) and still have my windows taskbar at bottom and UOA info at top. All I ever needed to do was flip the screen using alt/enter and then I could hit maximize or minimize to fill even a tiny bit more.

    But after installing on my new machine I can get kinda the same fill but no taskbar at bottom or uoa at top.

    I have tried a bunch of different UO Display options with no luck.

    I currently have my monitor set at 1920x1080 (recommended)
    and my game display options at 1024x768 full screen and 800x600 game play. I think this is how I had them in past but not positive.
    I have been trying various combos of the top 4 boxes in the uo display(use GDI,use full screen, etc..)with no luck.

    This is driving me nuts so I would greatly appreciate any advice

    I was just coming here to post a very simular question. I just upgraded from XP to Windows 7 and when I play on "non" full screen the play area only takes up about 1/3 of my screen and the black area takes up about 2/3. It use to be the other way. I have tried both settings 800X600 and 640X480. Obviously the 800X600 makes the game play a little bit bigger, but not big enough.

    Anyone know how to fix this? With the game play area being this small it is really unplayable for me.
