As this thread is still appearing in search results, it's probably worth adding that I've just solved this problem, which also appears MI:SE 2 running on Windows 10... in 2016.

I initially thought it was a Windows 10 problem but for me, it was because (prior to upgrading Windows) I'd played the game on an HDTV and was now attempting to play it on the computer's lower resolution screen.

This old Steam thread explains how to fix the settings:

... essentially, find the settings.ini file in
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\LucasArts\The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition
(or the equivalent for MI:SE2), open it in Notepad and tweak the resolution setting to fit the screen.

I didn't need to move the installation to the C: drive (as has been suggested, but that still may work for others) and I did fiddle with the compatibility settings in the game .exe, although I think this was ultimately unnecessary.

Hope this gives the answer the next time a search engine directs someone here!
