How to fix screen resolution windows

Whether you’re gaming, streaming movies, or working, screen resolution problems ruin the experience. Fixing the issue depends on the cause, which can range from hardware to settings problems. Windows 10 offers a variety of settings to customize your screen resolution to best fit your monitor type and situation.


Most screen resolution issues come down to one of the following causes:

  1. Settings aren’t optimized or have been changed
  2. Installing a new monitor
  3. Windows Update problems
  4. Driver issues
  5. App-specific issues
  6. Hardware problem (monitor, graphics card)

In this case, you’ll need to choose a lower resolution before playing or watching anything. For instance, YouTube allows you to change the video quality, which helps it to display better and stream faster.


How to change your screen resolution in Windows 10

1. Click the Windows button in the lower-left hand side of your screen. 

2. In the search box, type "display." 

3. Click "Display settings" to open the app.


4. In the Display screen, scroll down to the "Scale and layout" section. 

5. Click the box under "Display resolution" to see your available options. 


6. Click on the screen resolution you want, then either click "Revert" or "Keep changes." 


It should also be noted that you can change your screen layout from landscape to portrait or vice versa under the same "Scale and layout" section depending on your needs or preferences.

Update Drivers

For something so necessary for hardware to work properly on Windows 10, drivers cause many problems sometimes. For example, a flickering screen is often a driver issue. Drivers are often the culprit behind stretched screens, fuzzy resolution, poor refresh rates, and more. They can also make your screen look more like a Windows 95 desktop than the modern, crisp look we’re all used to.
