When I run my 4:3 aspect ratio games, I have it set, or should I say, my laptop already has it set so that there are black bars on the sides to maintain this aspect ratio.
I wanted to test something, and I changed my screen resolution, then I changed it back. Now suddenly, my 4:3 aspect ratio games are stretched on my 16:9 screen.
There was a way to change the aspect ratio settings of whether you want to stretch or preserve the aspect ratio in windows vista, but I can't seem to find the settings on windows 8.1.
I performed a system restore, but I don't want to have to do a system restore in case I accidentally change the resolution and not knowing how to revert 4:3 aspect ratio on a 16:9 monitor from stretch to preserve aspect ratio.
I have both an Intel HD graphics card 4600, and a Nvidia Geforce GTX 760M. I checked the intel graphics control panel, and the scaling is set at "maintain display scaling", which is why it probably stretches, but there is no option to preserve the aspect ratio.
