Cinnamon login screen does not fill entire monitor

Post by Beerislife » Mon Dec 04, 2017 3:58 am

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad laptop connected via HDMI to an external 27" monitor. The external monitor is set as primary and the Thinkpad screen is tuned off in settings. When I start the machine and it reaches the login screen it only uses a portion of the external monitor and does not fill it entirely. I suppose it's mirroring the size of the laptop screen. I can't find any setting for this. Is there a fix or should I just grin and bear it like this? :D

OS is Mint 18.3 Cinnamon.
