How do I change the display settings in Windows Control Panel?

To change the display settings in Windows 10 Control Panel, follow the steps below:

1. Open the Control Panel by entering control panel in the search bar of your Start menu and selecting it from the list of results.

2. Once the Control Panel window has opened, click the Hardware and Sound link.

3. Scroll down to the Display link and click this.

4. Under the Appearance and Personalization section, select the Change display settings link.

5. On the left side of the window that appears, select the Monitor tab. This will allow you to adjust resolution, refresh rate, and rotation settings for monitors and laptop screens.

6. In the Resolution field (in the middle of the window), select an available resolution from the drop-down menu. The higher the resolution, the better the detail on the screen can be, but many computer systems cannot handle resolutions higher than 1920×1080.

7. After setting the resolution, scroll down to the Refresh Rate field. This setting can usually be set to either Automatic or a specific number. While higher refresh rates can help reduce screen tearing and stuttering when gaming, these numbers should be kept lower if the graphics card cannot support them.

8. Lastly, the Rotation field can be used to rotate the screen 90, 180, or 270 degrees. While this might be useful for some applications, it’s not necessary for most.

9. Once all changes have been made, click the Apply button to save them.

10. If any settings cannot be applied due to low capabilities of the computer, a warning message will appear telling you so. Once the message is acknowledged, the previous settings will stay in place.

11. After this, a confirmation window will appear. Select Yes to save the changes and restart the computer, or No to return to the Display control panel window.
