This issue just arose last evening. I am migrating from one laptop to another, and both were operating Win 10 and had the screen resolution set to the recommended setting.

I run two projects - SETI @ home, and Einstein @ home. When I installed them, I noticed that the Einstein graphics are expanded to about 3 or 4 times normal size. Instead of seeing a "constellation globe" as I usually do, I see only a portion of the globe expanded to the screen. The SETI project graphics show up as normal.

I have never experienced anything like this before. Any ideas on why the Einstein graphics are over-sized while the SETI graphics are fine? This did not happen on my old laptop, nor does it happen on my desktop unit.

I am running BOINC 7.8.3, 64-bit.

I suggest you raise this on the Einstein message boards, if you haven't already.

Their forum moderator Mike Hewson has himself played around with the graphics display program: I suspect the difference may be due to the different programming languages chosen by the programmers at the two independent projects. Mike may be able to advise better.
