    How can I change the display resolution back for an application to it's default after the...


    I was having problems with an application and ran the ompatibility tool which changed the display resolution for the application Quicken but it wasn't the problem BUT I mistakenly accepted the display resolution that the compatibility tool chose which is much, much too large and didn't fix the problem and now I can't undo it. Can you help me undo this change for Quicken because now everytime I open Quicken it messes up the display resolution and I have to reset it.

    :)

  2. Display resolution keeps changing

    Hi Rick,

    It might be caused by a faulty driver that's why your display resolution keeps changing. We
    suggest that you uninstall and reinstall the display driver, see steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device Manager.
    • For graphics cards, expand the Display adapters category, right click your graphics card and select Uninstall.
    • Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

  3. Help! Windows 10 changed my resolution and can't see anything!!

    Hi Etan,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.





    Monitors can support resolutions that are lower than their native resolutions, but text won't look as sharp and the display might be small, centered on the screen, edged with black, or stretched. It is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display
    to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor. Your screen resolution needs to be at least
    1024x768 to have multiple windows and apps on your screen at the same time.





    Kindly follow the below methods and check if it helps.


    Method 1:


    I suggest you to set the Display Resolution on your monitor to the recommended level. Follow the below steps

    • Open the Start menu and type Settings in the search bar.
    • Click on System and select Display.
    • Make sure that you have set the Change the size of the text, apps and other items to 100%
      recommended.
    • Click on Advanced display settings.
    • Select the monitor and make sure that you have selected Resolution
      to 1920*1080 Recommended.
    If the issue still persists, then follow the below method.



    Method 2:


    I suggest you to update the display adapter then try to change the screen resolution.

    Follow the steps given below to uninstall and reinstall the display drivers.  

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Search for Display Adapters and expand it.
    • Right click on the Display Adapters and select Uninstall.
    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to contact the manufacturer to download the latest display adapters.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
