    Hi everyone, I have some wallpapers I used on my older windows 7 machine. Now, you could see the entire wallpaper because windows 7 had a transparent taskbar. But I have noticed that on windows 10, I cannot see the entire image. My laptop display is 1920 by 1080, while the wallpapers are 1900 by 1200.
    I would like the image to show in it's entirety above the taskbar.
    Any suggestions?

    What are the wallpapers? W10 doesn't have the same as W7 AFAIK.

    A 1920x1200 image displayed on a 1920x1080 display without stretching will have black bars on the left and right if you want to see the whole height.

    Right click on desktop and click "personalize". My backgrounds which are also 1920x1200 defaulted to "fill" which means it will slightly "zoom in" do fill the whole screen without distorting the image.

    "Fit" will show the entire image without distortion, but as I said above you will have black bars on left and right.

    "Stretch" will fill your entire screen with the entire image but it has to stretch the image to do this so it will be slightly distorted.
