    Specs:
    2011 13" MBP 2.3ghz, 8gig ram, OS 10.7.5
    - Is this an iMac's builtin display?
    - Is this an external display used with a Mac-Mini?
    - Is this an external display used with a Mac Pro?
    - Is this an external Display used with an iMac?

    More details always helps with helping us visualize the situation.

    What have you done so far?:

    - Have you tried adjusting things within the "Display" System Preference?
    - Was the Univeral Access "zoom" feature turned on by accident?
    - When you say you can only see 2/3rds of the screen...do you mean 1/3 of the display is "off in space somewhere" (outside the borders of the display)? Or is 1/3rd of the display actually black/blank?

    Nick this is on my 27" IMac, The best way to describe my issue is if you take your mouse pointer now and go to the bottom of your screen grab it and bring up the screen a third of the way and leave it that is how my screen is when I log on I have to bring it down like a window shade!Bob

    Thanks for the info Bob.

    I think that the first two things that need to be looked at are:

    1. Do you have the correct display resolution set. The correct "native resolution" for a 27" iMac is 2560x1440.

    To check this go to:

    - Apple Menu
    - System Preferences
    - Display

    2. Check to see if the "zoom" function has been activated. To check this go to:

    - Apple Menu
    - System Preferences
    - Universal Access or Accessibility (depends on the version of the OS you have)
    - check to see if "zoom" has been activated

    HTH,

    Your Zoom functions are set normally, leave them alone.

    When I open safari or1password It only comes 2/3rds of the screen I have to drag the bottom downward its getting annoying.
    How about other apps? Does the same happen? Or how about a bare desktop, do you get a full screen?

    OK, that helps to trouble shoot the problem. At least now we know it isn't hardware that's malfunctioning. Check to make sure you have Safari setup correctly so that it's centered on the screen. Same with 1Password. I have the same machine you have and Safari opens exactly the way I closed it. 1Password opens to a centered dialog that only takes up a small portion of the screen. I suspect you may have expanded both Safari and 1Password unevenly and they're opening the same way.

    Specs:
    late 2012 IMac 27", early 2014 MacBook Air, mid 2010 Macbook, OSX 10.10.5, iPhone 6, iOS 8
    from the safari menu have you tried:

    window
    zoom

    does this make safari expand to occupy the whole screen?

    if so, then try quitting and re-starting safari and see if it still does rather than occupying just 2/3ds of it
    what have the Roman's ever done for us?

    Have ypou tried repairing disk permissions ??

    If not, restart holding down ⌘R to boot into the Recovery Partition. Now in the menu bar got to Utilities and select Disk Utility. Now when open select your HD 2nd from top of list, and highlight it by clicking once. The click First Aid and then Repair Disk Permission down the bottom.
    Once done, (don't worry about all the error, this is normal) restart an see what you have by opening Safari, make it screen size and then ⌘Q it to Quit and then open it again.
    You might have some corrupt preferences and doing a Repair, can align everything again and make it right.

    Still nothing come back and lets us know.

    Cheers

    I would head into the Mac App Store download the OS you are on, and do a reinstall, AFTER you do a backup.
    That seems like the only option left that I see
