Windows 7: Aspect Ratio problem when playing an older game.

20 Mar 2020   #11

Windows 7 home premium x64

So, I know this will sound crazy, but I think I know WHAT changed my settings, I just have no idea how to change them back. This actually happend to me like 5 years ago, and I figured out how to fix it myself, but now its not working. So bear with me. 5 years ago, when I would use Chrome Remote Desktop, I had the same problem, somehow, clicking "Full Screen Mode" when I was using another computer and Remoting into this computer would change some display setting and the game would stretch the screen. I realized that if I exited "Full Screen Mode" on Chrome Remote Desktop before I closed the program, then it would not effect the ratio on my game. Now, with this new version of Chrome Remote Desktop, I fear that it has done the same thing, only when I exit full screen mode, it does not change it back. I know this sounds crazy, but it is the only thing I can think of. I tried doing a System Restore, but the stupid ass thing only goes back 10 days, obviously I've had this problem longer. I've tried uninstalling Chrome and all its files, but nothing has helped.

Okay, quick shot at seeing if you can fix this. Use asinine Chrome Remote Desktop again, login to the computer and change the resolution back to where it was. Hopefully it'll stick.

If that works, use Team Viewer for all future remoting and read my recent post on TV here.
