    Default Rift alters my desktop screen resolution

    When returning to desktop after running Rift client my desktop resolution has changed to my in-game resolution.

    For some reason Rift doesn't offer my native resolution as an option (1440x900) so I can't set it to that.

    When this happens all my icons are stretched horizontally & look 'fat'. Maybe that's why all my chars look so fat in game..

    Anyone else have this problem or workrounds for it?

    That's strange, the only thing I can think of is just changing your desktop to something that fits in game, but doesn't look bad.

    Thanks for the fast response

    gfx card is a new GTS 450 nVidea and I updated the drivers soon as I got it, pretty sure they're the latest.

    1440x900 (big enough for me) isn't available in game it seems

    Dual posting is not good, hence I won't give you a solution for that. Also you didn't answer my question
