  • Simply navigate to C: Users'username' Documents my games Skyrim Special Edition Skyrim Prefs and edit: iSize H=1080, and iSize W=1920 to whatever your resolution is. Save and set to read only on the file properties. Worked for me:) For example on my 21:9 I set it to iSize H=1080, and iSize W=2560.

Skyrim Special Edition Not Full Screen

Today we are talking to Mangaclub, a long-time member of our modding community and author of some of your favourite weather mods such as Vivid Weathers for Skyrim, Skyrim Special Edition, and Fallout 4. BigBizkit: Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions. Currently neither Skyrim:SE nor Fallout 4 will run at anything higher than 1920x1080, which isn't even centered in my screen, but off to the side without any black background. I have tried manually changing skyrimprefs.ini iWidth and iHight (or whatever they are called) to the proper numbers for my monitor, but that changes nothing.
