microsoftIf, for any reason, you  need to boot your Windows XP or Vista in Safe Mode, you may be at loss as to change the resolution of your screen. As a matter of fact, both XP and Vista don’t allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won’t be displayed correctly. This is due to the fact that the Safe Mode just loads basics services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run. Here is a free trick which will remove this restriction allowing you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP

  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.

Windows Vista

  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalise.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.
