Hi All

I have just got a 21 inch wide screen monitor, the display is distorted sideways, can anyone please give me a pointer which removes the distortion. I have tried several different settings, but it is difficult to see what works as all the icons are hidden by the settings screen. The one that I did try which was reasonable in getting it more or less right, made everything quite small. The current setting is 1280 x 1024 the one I tried that got things right but was small, was 1920 x 1080.

Many Thanks for any help.

Phil

Hi Phil,

Assuming it is a flat-screen monitor and not an old CRT display, there is only one setting which will look sharp, i.e. the native dot-pitch of the underlying hardware. 1920 x 1080 is very likely that, sometimes called 1080p:

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1080p

If that makes everything too small, you need to change the dpi setting in Windows.

Which version of Windows are you using? Go to Start > Control Panel > Display, and you should see something like this:



Change to one of the higher settings to get things looking bigger.

100% is 96dpi

125% is 120dpi

150% is 144dpi

In Windows10 the dialog is different but the end result is the same. Which version of Windows are you using?

regards,

Martin.
