How to change screen resolution on Windows 10

The Windows 10 Creators Update makes it a lot easier to see and change your current screen resolution.

Before the Creators Update, using the Settings app, you needed to open the Display settings, and then click the “Advanced display settings” link at the bottom of the page to get to change the resolution, which wasn’t a very obvious location.

However, Windows 10 now includes a revamped Display that makes it a lot easier to see your resolution and change it if you must to.

In this guide, you’ll learn the steps to change the resolution settings on your Windows 10 device.

  2. Click on System.

  3. Click on Display.

  4. Under “Scale and layout”, use the “Resolution” drop-down menu to change the screen resolution for your computer.
