Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Sep 13, 2012, 07:59 PM

My screen resolution changed when I unintentionally ran my hand across the

mouse. How do I get it back using the same process?

I know how to do it by going into Control Panel, I just want to know how I fugged it up.

1. You mean the zoom...print is bigger or smaller, right?

Try holding CTRL down while using the mouse wheel. That zooms in and out.
I don't know a way of changing the resolution for the whole computer with the mouse gesture you described.

2. I think it's some kind of magnifier.

3. Yes, it's a magnifier. It's on the right side of the mouse.
