Letterbox widescreen resolution

He appears to be using an ultrawide 21:9 aspect monitor. Many companies like LG, Dell, Samsung, etc, make them in various sizes. I've owned my 34" LG ultrawide for two years and would never go back to a 16:9 or 16:10 monitor ever again.

If you want to replicate the 21:9 feeling on a standard 16:9 monitor, just type in the resolution manually in the settings. There's a dropdown that lets you pick the resolution, but what might not be obvious is that you can type in whatever you want into the text box as well. For a 1920x1080 monitor, you'll want to use 1920x823.
