Primary display size changes when launching Oculus Rift

I have a GTX 1080 with primary display being a 40" TV and a secondary 27" monitor. Recently I've started getting this annoying screen size change when launching rift. Like an overscan. The windows taskbar is out of the screen viewing area and so forth. This is a recent thing, and I believe it's caused by the recent update. Anyone else get this and have a fix? I'm getting tired of resizing all of the time.

    Same here. I sometime set my screen to 720p (because a few VR games actually re-render to desktop). Opening Oculus will now force the output back to 1080p, but with a 720p virtual desktop inside. This messes up screen recording as it will record the full 1080p black screen with the 720p game in the middle.

    All my apps/games render to my monitor at correct resolutions and gamebar records them perfectly at full HD (1920x1080)...I would suggest that it could be a setup prob on your PC...maybe try disabling a monitor before launching your Oculus.

    The problem is when using any resolution other than 1080p.

    Oh I've had this issue for a while now and made a thread about it too. 

    Just got a new pc and was hoping it would go away but it still happens and could not figure out why and as mentioned above, I've noticed it doesn't happen when my monitor is at 1080p but any lower resolution my screen just shrinks. It didn't bother me at first but it is very annoying now, say if I want to just browse oculus home without putting on my rift, I need my resolution lower as I have sight issues, ahh well guess i'll just have to put up with it for now and see if it ever gets fixed

    I was a believer!! I was a Kickstarter backer!! Now I shall reap the rewards!!! :D :D :D

    Same problem. I just change the resolution to.. anything else, then when it asks me if I want to keep the settings, I say no, and then it fixes it. I have to do this every time. Super annoying. It went away for a while, but now its back. I had a good few weeks where it stayed the same. I think there is likely a way I could keep it from happening, just not sure how. 9/10 times no one watches me play, I don't really need it to render to the desktop at all.

    This reminds me of the bug in virtual desktop where you can't "click". All you have to do is not minimize the oculus screen. It doesn't happen to everyone, so it has to be something fixable.
