This morning when I started my virtual machine, the screen resolution was off. The clarity of the text in all my applications was fuzzy. I reinstalled Parallels Tools and installed an update but to no avail.

I have a screenshot attached. Any ideas on how to get my vivid screen resolution restored?

it looks minimised - can you put the pouse on the top grey bar, and drag it to the left, so you can see the right most buttons?
then select maximise

I went to full screen in order to get that screenshot you wanted and when I did, the resolution corrected itself and it looked great. When I went back to the view that I typically utilize, the correction stayed in place.

Not sure what happened or why, but your suggestion seemed to solve the problem.

Thanks!
