The screen resolution or display resolution determines the clarity and number of items displayed on your computer screen. It is measured horizontally and vertically in pixels. At lower screen resolutions, such as 800 x 600, texts and images appear larger but less items fit on the screen. At higher resolutions, such as 1920 x 1080, more items fit on the screen, with smaller and sharper appearances.
You can follow these easy steps:
- Right-click your desktop, then select Display settings.
- From the drop-down menu under Resolution, select a resolution that suits your needs.
As the resolution modes vary with each display based on the video card device, monitor size, video driver, and monitor driver, the recommended resolution for your PC may be different. For example, 1920 x 1080 is the recommended resolution for mine.
- After you select a different resolution, you’ll be prompted to decide within 15 seconds whether you want to keep the change to the screen resolution.
At this 15-second interval, you may go to your desktop or just browse a website to see if the current resolution suits your preferences. If it does, you can click Keep changes; if not, click Revert, then select another resolution.
To get a better experience with your monitor or screen, you should update your monitor and graphics drivers.
There are two ways to update your drivers: manually and automatically.
Update your drivers manually — You can update your driver manually by going to the hardware manufacturer’s website, and searching for the latest driver. But if you take this approach, be sure to choose the driver that’s compatible with the exact model number of your hardware, and your version of Windows.
Update your drivers automatically — If you don’t have the time, patience or computer skills to update your drivers manually, you can, instead, do it automatically with Driver Easy. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to risk downloading and installing the wrong driver, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing. Driver Easy handles it all.
- Download and install Driver Easy.
- Run Driver Easy and click Scan Now. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.
- Click Update next to any flagged devices to automatically download the correct version of their drivers, then you can install them manually. Or click Update All to automatically download and install them all automatically. (This requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All. You get full support and a 30-day money back guarantee.)
