Hi... I bought a product key for 100php as I already had a digital licence ... followed the instructions and all appears fine.

One annoying thing - I use a tv monitor as a display and the screen doesn't fit right ... I cannot find an option under Display settings in Windows 10 to fix this... in Android there's a handy option to squeeze the display into the TV screen...

Do you know how I can fix it ?

If you not already tried

Right click blank area on screen

click display settings

you should find  "Resolution" there,  you can try different settings

Are you using HDMI  to connect   pc to the tv ?

 

And had a problem like the one I think you may have

I had to change input jack on my SONY 40" to get it correct

You may have to go into setting on your tv 

on the SONY 32" I have here I go to settings screen and try different settings there

Yes - I tried lots of different resolutions and that doesn't fix it.

Yes - I use the hdmi lead ... to connect the pc to the tv...

I'll have a look on the tv - another tv (Syncmaster) that I used to use had those handy arrow keys but I think this one is more tv than monitor..

I updated the driver for my graphics card about 3 months ago and lost the context menu that used to bring up the Intel Control Panel option... fortunately it's back now.

Have you tried any of the Office Software on Lazada - seems very reasonably priced ?

try the aspect ratio settings on your tv remote, toggle through 16:9, 4:3 and whatever other options there are, see if one of them makes the screen fit,
