On a dual-monitor setup, how can I keep the game in one monitor without the browser windows on the other monitor moving?

I have two monitors. One is an Acer LED LCD and the other is a plain Dell LCD. My goal is to have a full screen game on my Acer monitor (the primary monitor) with a browser running on the Dell monitor. I am already able to do that, but the windows on the Acer monitor are pushed (either partially or fully) over to the dell monitor, and the windows open on the Dell monitor upon game launch are partially pushed outside of the display.

In the picture I’ve attached, the line between the black portion and Chrome is the split between the monitors. The black portion is the game that is currently open. Chrome was open on the Acer monitor (to the left), and it was pushed halfway onto the Dell monitor (to the right). Also, Steam was open on the Dell monitor, and it was pushed further to the left, causing part of it to lie outside of the display.

Does anyone know of a way to combat this with software or tweaks to the hardware preferences?

windows while the game is open


This is happening because the game you are running is not running at the same resolution as the monitor you are on. If you adjust the settings in the game to match those of the monitor, you shouldn’t see this problem anymore.

Unfortunately, where it is not possible to match the resolution of your game to your monitor, you will still see this effect. Running it in windowed mode, where available will also bypass this problem, and many older games can be tweaked or modded to do one or the other.
