I have Hoyle card 2008, games 2003 and casino 2006. All 3 used to open up in full screen with Vista, & 7. I bought a new computer with 10 and loaded from the discs and I now have black boxes on both sides. Is there away to open them up in full screen? I had the same result when I up-graded my laptop from 7 to 10.

Thank you.

Hoyle Card Games 2008 will only work if you have an unprotected version of the game as the disk check mechanism.

Your 2003 and 2006 games are technically incompatible on Windows 10 64 bit unless you move a folder or two for Face Creator.

In the case of the laptop upgrading from 7 to 10 - This may be a limitation of the graphics driver available to your system. Your system may be old where an 8.1 or 10 driver was never produced and your system is running a 7 driver on Windows 10. The only way its supported if its downloaded through Windows Update which is how most older drivers are installed when the system is upgraded from 7 to 10.

Lots of technicalities here to discuss.....
