The bottom fourth of my screen is broken, showing some weird lines. It's too expensive for me to replace it, but there's still plenty of space in the upper part because it originally had full HD resolution (1920x1080).
What I wanted to try is to change the size of the screen that Windows 7 uses, i.e. somehow trick it into believing my screen physically is smaller, by one fourth of it's height. That way the windows would nicely fill the working screen space when maximized, etc.
I'm sure this can be done, but how complicated is it?
