My 15" flat PC screen has recently decided to change to widescreen format so that I have to scroll horizontaly to view.
How can I change it back to normal?

Go to the control panel and choose display. Click on the settings tab and then choose the correct screen format i.e. that for standard, non-widescreen and then drag it to the front.

Right click on the mouse on the desk top. Select properties, go into settings, slider showing screen resolution. Slide this so it shows 1248 X 762. Job done. Good luck, Migwell

For a 15" not in widescreen format, you'll probably want a resolution of 1024 * 768 rather than 1248 * 762.
