I encountered a similar Win 10 problem with my Graphics Driver, which I use to feed a large TV screen. Previously, I could use the ATI utility to set a custom resolution to get a good fit to the screen. No more - stuck with a very limited set of resolutions, none of which are quite right.

However, a Google search led me to the freeby Custom Resolution Utility, which works beautifully. Perhaps there is something similar for your problem.

One thing I do like about Win10 is the ability to set multiple monitors at different settings. On my desktop I use a 28" monitor turned vertically for OS, icons, email, etc and a larger, 42" 4k screen for photos. Prior versions of Windows set the monitors at their defaults and that was that. Now I can customize resolution, font size, icons, etc for each. Pretty nice really.

FWIW, I'm using an AMD Firepro adapter, It was not terribly expensive and does a nice job with 4k and handling both screens. Sometimes it is time to give up older (expensive) beloved hardware that we know intimately when new stuff does what we need and more easily.

Time to the dumpster can be shorter than mean time between failures, and that hurts. But, it is sorta like Nikons, Canons and the A9. It ain't going to be backwards compatible with a mirror. "The latest and greatest" often is. Moore's Law derivatives are still in the IT driver's seat.
