Hello clsmall

The instructions below are based on the assumption that yours is a Windows-based operating system (not Microsoft Vista, though). If your operating system is Microsoft Windows Vista or a non-Microsoft or or non-Windows-based operating system, please, let us know and we'll provide you w/ the appropriate instructions for changing your resolution.

(01) Right-click anywhere on the desktop (the screen you see after you have logged into Windows).

(02) Select PROPERTIES at the bottom of the context menu

(03) Click on the SETTINGS tab.

(04) In the mid to lower left you will see a section called "Screen Resolution"

(05) Move the slide arrow to the resolution you'd like to try or change to.

(06) Click the APPLY button in the lower right.

(07) Choose the NO button if you don't wish to keep the new resolution and YES if you do.

(08) Repeat this process (steps (5) thru (7)) until you've decided on a new display resolution.

(08) Once you've decided on which resolution you'd like to keep, click the OK button

That should do the trick.

Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc. on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

How do I get missing Icons back on my PC screen


The higher the resolution, the more likely you will be able to see your icons.
From Microsoft.com:
1. Open Display in Control Panel. 2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider, and then click Apply. 3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. Your screen will turn black for a moment. 4. Once your screen resolution changes, you have 15 seconds to confirm the change. Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to your previous setting. Note
• To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display. • A higher screen resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop • You can switch your screen resolution temporarily to 640 X 480 if you have games or other programs that are set to run at that resolution. To switch, right-click the game or program (on the desktop or on the Start menu), and then click Properties. Click the Compatibility tab, and then select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your display reverts to its default resolution when you close the program. • Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level. • Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer. • Only the recommended screen resolutions are listed. For additional settings, click the Advanced button on the Settings tab, click the Adapter tab, and then click List all Modes. Select the resolution, color level, and refresh rate you want.

I can`t change my setting before a game please tell me how


I presume you are referring to changing your screen resolution before a game. As games typically automatically change the screen resolution, I am a bit surprised by the query. On XP systems, you can right click on the desktop, select properties, select the settings tab, and you can alter the resolution in the drop down box. On Windows 7, click the start button, then control panel, then appearance and Personalization. Select from the drop down list the resolution you want and click apply. In Windows 8, you pretty much follow Windows 7 procedures but rather than using a drop down to pick a resolution, you use the sliding bar, then click apply. You might want to write down what the original resolution was set at before making any changes.

Perhaps there is a a way to change resolution in the "setup" or settings menu of the game.

When a monitor displays "Input not supported", the display resolution is set too high. To resolve this, change the resolution to a supported resolution of the monitor.

  2. On the Settings tab, under Screen resolution, drag the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.
  3. When prompted to apply the settings, click OK. The screen will turn black for a moment.
  4. Once the screen resolution changes, confirm the change by selecting Yes. A timer will count down for 15 seconds to ensure the change is desired.
    Click Yes to confirm the change; click No or do nothing to revert to the previous setting.
In Windows Vista
  1. Press the Start button , select Control Panel, select Appearance and Personalization, select Personalization, and then Display Settings.
  2. Under Resolution, move the slider to the desired resolution and click Apply.

We can't get our screen resolution back to what it was (1024x768) it changed when a game being played ended. It runs on 800x600 at the moment and everything is too big.


First right-click on the desktop and then left click on Properties from the menu that appears.

The display properties dialogue box will appear as shown in fig 1.1 below, click on the settings tab at the top right of the box.

0643c0b.gif

The areas worth noting are:

Screen Resolution
This slide bar is what you use to change the resolution, the options you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.

Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.

Color Quality
This pull down box will contain the current colour options available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for best results select the highest option available.Changing the Resolution
To change your resolution simply slide the bar along to the resolution of your choice and then click the Apply button.

After clicking Apply your screen will resize to the new resolution and you will be presented with a confirm dialogue box (see left), if you are happy with the way your screen looks then simply click Yes, if you would like to try a different resolution click No.

When you have finished simply close the Display properties box.
