Unwanted change to screen appearance

My laptop has (un-asked-for) elongated the appearance of everything on the screen, stretching letters and photos horizontally so that it's uncomfortable for the eye to look at! How can I get it back to a normal look?

Sounds as though the resolution has changed. What operating system?

It's Vista. Have tried resetting to earlier date but to no avail.

Try right clicking a blank space on the desktop, select screen resolution, select the recommended one. You also have various settings to try if you right click the desktop again and select personalise.

Thank you so much - it's back to normal.
