Windows 10: Win 10 resolution problem not addressed anywhere else

    Win 10 resolution problem not addressed anywhere else

    My resolution is perfect unless I accidently let my left hand rest slightly on the keys are pressed, it just seems to react to the shadow of my hand over the keyboard. I know best solution is not to put my hand there, but sometimes I just plain forget and poof! it changes again. Sure would appreciate hearing a different solution.

    Hi Carole, welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you know that key combination CTRL & + (holding down CTRL key while pressing the + sign) zooms the current application in? The same happens if you press CTRL and scroll mouse wheel forward, away from you.

    Zooming out can be done with CTRL & -, or CTRL & scrolling mouse wheel backwards, towards you.

    Could it be that the "shadow" has been you accidentally pressing the CTRL key down while either pressing + or - key, or using mouse wheel?

    If this is the case, CTRL & 0 always resets the zoom for 100%, normal view.

    Thanks for the prompt reply

    But those actions aren't happening. I am just working hard to keep left hand so it is no where near the keyboard,
