Second monitor cuts top off of anything displayed

Grabbed an image because that’s a weird one to explain. Basically, the top of whatever app, browser, etc that I view on my second monitor is chopped off at the top. The screenshot shows more than I can actually see, on screen I do not see the restore/close/minimize buttons at all.

I’ve checked display settings, settings on the monitor, nvidia settings all with no luck. What setting am I missing?

EndeavourOS, Gnome

Read your monitor’s user manual, and post what it says about changing output size.

Xorg, or Wayland session?
Post info:

inxi -SMGIaz
xrandr --list-monitors

I was making this far more difficult than necessary. Further tinkering with the monitor settings revealed Input Select and offered HDMI AV or HDMI PC. It needed to be PC. Thank you for sending me back to the user manual! :man_facepalming: :laughing:
