Hello! A probably often asked question, but I still couldn't find a post / answer - maybe I'm too "blind" .... sorry! Darkest Hour is not displayed in the full 17" screen resolution on my laptop, only as a small box (right and left with black stripes) ... I tried the setting options in the launch box but that doesn't work! Is there one possibility to change the display so that my 17 "screen is fully used by the game?

If you are running with Intel graphics, you should have a little program installed "Intel Graphic Settings" . Open it and check to see if "Scale Full Screen" is checked.

Right click on Darkest Hour.exe then go to Compatibility Settings - first check "disable Fullscreen Optimization" then click on "chance high DPI Settings" and check the "override High DPI scaling behavior" and it must be selected scaling performed by "Application" and its done.

That helps if you use Windows 10 at every Game that displays the Picture in that wrong Way.

Hope thats your Problem,good Luck.

Try running it in window mode but with the window covering your whoel screen, the launcher, it will tell you you can't do that but you can. Just right click the game .exe file, go to properties, then check "reduced colour mode" and make it 16. Then run as admin. Now go to your settings file in the same folder part of it should look like this:

6 # Display resolution: 0 = do not change (default: 1024x768), 1 = 1152x864, 2 = 1280x768, 3 = 1280x1024, 4 = 1440x900, 5 = 1600x1024, 6 = user specified - see below
1600 # Screen Width (used if 6 is selected as screen resolution - see above)
900 # Screen Height (used if 6 is selected as screen resolution - see above)
1 # Display mode: 0 = full screen, 1 = windowed

Then just launch the game from the game exe not the launcher, it will use the last used mod, see if that works?

Did either of mine or Oberts Wills solution work for you? Because they both work for me on windows 10.
