HKUSERSuseDefaultOverscaMargins specifies whether to use the default overscan margins for all user accounts.



Use overscan margins that are optimized for using Windows® Media Center on a television for all user accounts.


Use overscan margins that are optimized for using Windows Media Center on a personal computer for all user accounts. This is the default value.

We recommend enabling the HKUSERSuseDefaultOverscaMargins setting on personal computers so that the edges of the Windows Media Center are not cut off by the bezel of the television. Microsoft does not recommend adjustment on computers designed to be connected primarily to a monitor because the adjustment is not needed, and it results in minor visual artifacts along the edges of the screen.
