This a guide for anyone who has found their PC screen size to shrink down after playing the game! This glitch effects the display of your system even when you’re not playing sims! It is noticeable by your screen being shrunk down on both side and into a small box on your desktop.



Hello everyone and welcome to my guide on this glitch! I hope you’re all having a good day and are ready to fix a glitch caused by the Sims 3. 

The Glitch

The Screen Shrink Glitch is caused when you get a pop-up on your PC that would close the program (Closed as in still running, but not up on screen) and you click back onto sims while your screen is still a small square which happens for a short while upon closing it before returning to normal. This glitch keeps your screen as a small square and doesn’t effect sims at all, but it effects your computer desktop. 

The Solution

By now, you are probably panicking and have no idea for to return your display to its regular size. Well, I have the solution! All you need to do is go into your Settings, go to Display and change your Display Resolution as its been set down to 1024 x 768! You can fix the issue by returning it to a larger size (Preferably the size that say “Recommended”) and everything should be back to normal!
