    Set your screen resolution to 1600x1200 before launching MSTS, then try.
    There is also a high-DPI/widescreen patch you can search for in the file library, I believe.
    Note, of course, that Nvidia GPUs give reliable results. AMD and Intel GPUs may or may not work.

    I will offer you separate advice of zipping up the default routes folder that the MSTS disks have installed on your hard drive. Zip that folder up and protect that archive for when the day comes when the apron strings between Win 1x and MSTS are finally cut permanently. That way when you wander back this way into train simming again in the future, that zip archive will be the only thing allowing you to make use of all those freeware routes in this here file library.
