  1. How do I reset my screen resolution back to default?


    I was messing around in my settings because I was curious and ended up changing my screen resolution. The "recommended" settings make everything seem... crunchy, and the other settings either don't fit my monitor or make everything huge. The one I currently have it set to makes everything squished, but it's the easiest to look at. I've tried looking through every post on here I could, but didn't find anything that worked for me.


    I don't know how to change it back to the way it was before. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    :)

    HELP! How reset bad screen resolution

    I set the resolution to one the monitor didn't like. I intended to wait the 15 seconds for a reset but hit the enter key (don't ask) thus taking the "ok" default.

    Resetting the resolution in safe mode has no effect.

    Thanks.
