    Windows 10 did an update on my computer last night it took VERY long to do. Now everything looks way too large I'm having trouble seeing somethings on the screen.

    I tried to adjust the computer's resolution but Windows won't let me. The resolution is set on 1920 X 1080 which Windows says is recommended. Whenever I try to change it returns to 1920 X 1080. Help please.

    Hi! Have you tried restoring to a earlier time before the update! That would be my first choice!

    Naturally, I got an error message that said that the system restore feature was turned off. There are no restore points to go back to. Don't look at me. I never changed anything. Any ideas? There has to be a way to change the resolution. BTW they took away my desktop pictures and intalled more Mircosoft program on my toolbar. Is a Chromebook practle?

    Hi Bob! That's not good that you don't have any restore points. I hope you turned that feature on. I think it is turned off by default, which makes no sense to me at all!
    If you can't change the resolution by following this tutorial, then a reset or in-place repair may be needed.
    Give this a look!

    does it revert to 1080p immediately after you change or after a shutdown?

    What about changing scaling in settings >display >scaling? Make it smaller
