Changing your display resolution settings in the Control Panel allows you to customize your computer’s display so that it looks more aesthetically pleasing. It also helps to ensure that apps work correctly and are sized according to the resolution of your monitor. The steps to change the display resolution settings in the Control Panel vary depending on the version of Windows that is installed on your PC, but the process is generally the same.
To begin, open the Control Panel. To do this, press both the Start button and the R key simultaneously, type in “control” (without the quotation marks) and press Enter. You should now see the Control Panel window with a number of options for controlling your computer’s settings.
In the Control Panel window, click on the option for “Display”. This will bring up another window called “Display Settings”. In the Display Settings window, there are two tabs available: “Settings” and “Advanced”. Click on the “Advanced” tab.
Once you are in the Advanced tab, find and click on the “Change display settings” link. This will open a new window where you can adjust the display resolution settings. In this window, you will see a preview of your current resolution and a box where you can enter a new resolution.
To enter a new resolution, type in the numbers that you want to use. For example, if you want a resolution of 1920 x 1080, you would type in “1920” in one box and “1080” in the other. Then, click on the “Apply” button at the bottom of the window.
Once you have entered the new resolution, the display settings window will appear again. Click on the “OK” button to apply the changes. If everything worked correctly, you should now be able to see your desktop running at the new resolution.
If you want to make further adjustments to your display settings, the Control Panel has several other options. To access these options, click on the “Advanced” tab, then select “Adjust screen resolution”. From here, you can choose from a variety of options, such as brightness, color depth, contrast, and gamma.
Changing the display resolution settings in the Control Panel is a simple process that takes only a few minutes. Doing so can have a dramatic effect on your viewing experience and can help make sure that apps run correctly on your computer.
