Windows live mail changes screen resolution

Posted on 2009-04-26

Whenever I go into Windows live mail, the screen resolution changes to 640 x 480 automatically.  The video card is an Intel 82815 Graphics Controller.  I then have to change it back to 800 X 600.  Any ideas?

    skkinney--Is this a Dell PC?  If so Dell states to remove the "Dell Resolution Assistant" or "Dell Solution Center" from the computer.

    When I right click on the icon, or anywhere else to open Live Mail, I only get General and Shortcut tabs.  No compatible tab.  When I exit the program, the resolution goes back to normal.
    No it isn't a dell.  It is a gateway.

    Go to the Windows Live Mail program path and right click on the exe file.
    C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\wlmail.exe

    Choose properties
    go to the compabilty-tab
    if the option "run in 640 x 480 screen resoultion" is checked, uncheck it.
