Water was sprayed on my 19" monitor and damaged some parts of it. I need a solution that will let me specify the screen area to be used by Windows, as if it was a smaller monitor. Its default menu doesn't have this option.


Winsplit-Revolution might do what you need.

  • This really isn't a solution because it only re-arranges the windows on the screen. It doesn't allow one window to always be on top of another. – Gabriel Fair Jan 15 '12 at 5:34

    @GabrielFair Winsplit-Revolution has also "always-on-top" functionality, at least since v.11.04: press Ctrl+Alt+T and then enable/disable it or simply toggle it with Ctrl+Alt+O. – bluish Jan 8 '13 at 13:58
  • There is others.... alternativeto.net/software/winsplit-revolution/… – NitroxDM May 1 '13 at 14:20

What model is your monitor? It may have a "1:1 pixel mode" or something like that in the settings. With that option set, you can specify a lower screen resolution on the computer, and the monitor will only use that number of pixels, instead of scaling the image to full screen.

  • Unfortunately, the monitor is gone for good now. Thank you for your help! (I had originally posted this comment as a reply and it was deleted for breaking the forum guidelines.) – user33758 Dec 2 '11 at 9:03
