Overscan Options in Catalyst 9.9 on Windows 7

I had enough trouble finding this option that i felt it worthy of a blog post.

I’m not immediately sure how the Catalyst Control Center differs between Windows 7 and Windows XP, but I was able to find the Overscan/Underscan options a bit easier in XP.

To access the Overscan option of your current display do the following:

  • Right click on the Desktop and open CCC
  • If your not already in Advanced Mode, Switch to this.
  • Click dropdown menu Graphics in the top right
  • Select Desktops and Displays
  • Right Click your currently activated display under ‘Please Select a Display’
  • Select Configure
  • Click on the Scaling Options tab 😀

From this menu you’ll probably find more of your favorite CCC options that you’ve been missing. For reference these instructions come from a Windows 7 machine with a Sapphire ATi Radeon 4850 running Catalyst Control Center 9.9
