My Dell Laptop Screen Doesn't Display Full Screen When I Change the Resolution

Written by stephen lilley | 13/05/2017

If you Dell laptop computer screen isn't displaying a full-screen image after you adjust its overall resolution, this means that you've changed to a resolution that your monitor doesn't support. You've either picked a resolution that is too large or too small for your laptop's built-in screen to handle. You can correct this by switching it back to its recommended resolution, using native Windows tools.

Right-click on your Dell laptop desktop.

Select "Screen Resolution."

Choose the "Resolution" drop-down menu.

Slide the vertical bar to the resolution with the word "Recommended" listed next to it.

Select "Apply," then click "OK."
