1. Open the Control Panel. The Control Panel is an area of your computer that allows you to control every aspect of its settings, including display and appearance. To open the Control Panel, ‘click’ the Windows icon located on the bottom left-hand corner of your desktop or laptop.
2. Click the ‘Hardware and Sound’ option. Once you have the Control Panel open, look for the ‘Hardware and Sound’ option down the left-hand side, and click it.
3. Select the ‘Display’ tab. This should be at the top of the window.
4. Select the ‘Change Display Settings’ option. You will now see a list of options. Scroll down the list until you find the ‘Change Display Settings’ option and click on it.
5. Choose your screen resolution. At the bottom of the window, next to the Resolution: slider, you can select your desired resolution. The higher the resolution, the sharper the image. However, the higher the resolution, the less screen space you have overall.
6. Select the ‘Apply’ button. After you are done with selecting your desired resolution, make sure to click the ‘Apply’ button to save the changes.
7. Select the ‘OK’ button. Once the changes have been saved, you will get a prompt asking you to confirm them. Click the ‘OK’ button to apply the changes.
8. Adjust your color settings. You can also adjust the color settings in the Control Panel by selecting the ‘Color’ tab. Choose the number of colors you want your computer to display and select the ‘Apply’ option to save the changes.
9. Adjust your brightness and contrast settings. You can also adjust your brightness and contrast settings using the appropriate sliders. Again, make sure to click the ‘Apply’ button to save the changes.
10. Change your display orientation. If you need to, you can also change your display orientation from landscape to portrait. The ‘Orientation’ tab in the Display Settings window allows you to do this.
11. Adjust your refresh rate. The refresh rate measures how many times per second your monitor refreshes the image on the screen. The higher the refresh rate, the smoother the image will appear. You can adjust the refresh rate in the ‘Advanced’ tab of the Display Settings window.
12. Check for updates. Finally, it is always a good idea to check for any available updates for your display adapter. This can help improve the performance and overall experience of your computer. You can do this by selecting the ‘Device Manager’ tab in the Control Panel, and updating your display adapter.
