Adjusting resolution for Screen Saver
Recently purchased widescreen monitor. Per instructions, changed PC
resolution to 1680X1050, which is maximum supported by monitor. Most
displays now utilize the entire screen, EXCEPT my screen saver, which now
displays square pictures, greatly distorted. What am I overlooking?

Re: Adjusting resolution for Screen Saver
There are no resolution settings allowed under the screen saver properties.
So, I'm trying to figure out why the screen saver applications seems to be
the major (if not only) display that remains distorted.

Re: Adjusting resolution for Screen Saver

As Nonny said, the only thing you can do is try the "Settings" button
right next to the screen saver selection. If the option is grayed out,
or your resolution isn't there, you'll have to deal with the
imperfection or find a new screen saver.
