After running the Windows 8 compatibility check, it states:
Your screen resolution doesn't meet the requirement to install apps from the Windows StoreYou need a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 to install and use apps from the Windows Store (this includes apps that might be pre-installed on your PC). You might be able to change your resolution in the Display Control Panel.
My screen resolution is set to 1280 x 720 so it isn't going to work.
If i set it to 1280 x 768, it doesn't stretch to the end of my monitor.
It can go up to 1920 x 1080 but this is way too small for me... anything in between does not fit the screen.
How can I get around this???? Any ideas?
