Screwed up my resolution

    Using Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit and a Dell U2410 monitor. Native resolution on the
    monitor is 1920 x 1200. Since I got the monitor three months ago, I've had it
    set for 1680 x 1050, as it's easier to see without having to wear glasses.
    Tongith, for some stupid reason (idle hands) I changed the color from 32 bit to
    16 bit to se what the difference was and also because Paint Shop Pro was
    readjusting something to do with color every time I launched itn then set it
    back when I closed the program and I wanted to see what was going on. When I
    went back to 32 bit color, the resolution setting of 1680 x 1050 no longer
    fills the entire monitor screen as it had before I screwed with things. I've
    looked all through the settings, even reset the factory settings on the monitor
    to try and get a full screen back but I can't. I only get a full screen now when
    I go to 1920 x 1200, which I don't want. Any idea what I could have done or how
    to fix it? Thanks.

    Have you tried using a System Restore point ?

    Perhaps that is the easiest way to get back to the way things were :)

    Why not leave the res at default and make text and other items larger?

    hell that is.
