    Game continues to change resolution


    I have a game on my PC called Hollow Knight. Whenever I launch it, my screen resolution changes from 1366 x 768 to something closer to 800 x 600 or so. This is annoying. Is there a way to lock my screen into a certain resolution?


    I have already tried using specific Steam settings to lock the settings, and they didn't work. I can see no reason to ever need to change my resolution from 1366 x 768, so is there a way to prevent it from ever changing? Thanks.

    :)
