Hi guys, I'm experiencing a very weird issue.


When I start Skyrim it is in windowed mode, and from what I can tell it's about 360px wide, tiny. Normally I use the SKSE launcher, but I launched TESV.exe so as to change the resolution back to normal. However, it's not even loading the splash screen anymore, TESV goes strait to game. So currently there's no way for me to change the resolution back. 


I haven't installed any new mods lately. I'd really like to avoid re-installing and applying all my mods again.


Anyone heard of this situation before? Thanks for your help!

Somewhere in your $DOCS folder is a file called SkyrimPrefs.ini. In that, you can change those options.


iSize W=1024
iSize H=640
bFull Screen=1
