Adjusting Display Options

by DerfX / July 21, 2011 9:37 PM PDT

I got this new laptop, love it, actually about a year old now, it's an HP Pavilion dv6 with a wide-screen display that appears to have the display settings set to their default at 1366x768.

You can change the format of individual pictures in the theme (assuming it are jpg's or png's or gif's or such files) using a picture editor. I use (free) irfanview for such a task, but you might prefer another program you already have installed.

I have a stubborn streak, I don't like to give up easy, so I found a work-around for this issue, just in case somebody else might be thinking along the lines I am.
