How do I change the screen resolution of my computer using Windows Control Panel?

Changing the screen resolution of a computer using Windows Control Panel is a straightforward process.

First, access the Windows Control Panel. You can do this by pressing the Windows key + R on your keyboard, typing “control” into the command line and pressing enter. Alternatively, you can click on the Start Menu and select “Control Panel” from the list of options.

Once in the Windows Control Panel, navigate to the “Appearance and Personalization” page. Here, you can find the “Display” option under the “Personalization” heading. Select it.

The next page that appears is the “Display Settings” window. This window contains two sections – one for adjusting the size of text and one for adjusting the screen resolution. Select the “Change display settings” link under the second section, entitled “Resolution”.

The “Screen Resolution” window should open, where you will be able to adjust the resolution of the screen. You can either drag the resolution slider or type a specific resolution in the “Resolution” field. Remember to select the “Apply” button after you have made the changes to save them.

Alternatively, you can click the “Advanced settings” link to open the “Advanced Settings” window. This window contains more advanced settings such as “Colors”, “Monitor” and “Adapter” that can also be adjusted.

If you have multiple displays connected to your computer, you can also adjust their resolution individually in the “Multiple Displays” dropdown menu.

Once you are happy with the changes you have made, select the “OK” button at the bottom of the window. This will prompt a confirmation box. Select “Keep changes” to finish the process and save the changes. Select “Revert” to discard the changes you have made.

It is important to note that changing your screen’s resolution can affect how programs and images appear on your computer. If you find that your programs and images appear blurry or distorted after adjusting the resolution, try readjusting the resolution or reverting back to the previous resolution.
