    The screen resolution in safe mode is to high and the window is so big that I cant do any thing in safe mode.
    So my question is not how to set screen resolution in safe mode but how to reset screen resolution OF safe mode.
    Any help will be most welcome
    Thank you

    don't think you can do that. Safe mode, by definition, loads only most basic drivers needed to get up and running. As the video card has a slew of variables that can cause conflicts in a system, it generally just loads a generic driver that has no functionality outside of getting an image to the screen. That's also why it looks pixellated; no hi-rez in safe mode.
