One of the basic characteristics that you have to know when buying a television, monitor or see the capabilities of a smartphone camera is its resolution. And it is that in the case of cameras they can have a 108 MPX sensor, but if they do not have a good resolution it is useless at all. Luckily this does not happen in any smartphone camera, but you should be aware of this feature. Therefore, if you buy a new screen for your computer, we will tell you howHow to set the resolution in Windows 10.
What is screen resolution for?
The answer to this question may be so simple for many that it is unnecessary to comment on it, but still there are users who do not know it. And is that for years we have seen, for example, different functions on YouTube that did not happen to what today is high definition or HD. Do you remember the quality jump that the video took when you put it for the first time in 720p or already in 1080p? If you have a screen compatible with these capabilities then you could exploit the full potential of the machine.
But this has a reason and everything resides in that the screen resolution is the number of pixels it shows. Therefore, the higher the resolution, the better definition and detail the image will have, but you may not know that there is a way to modify the Windows 10 screen resolution.
How to change the screen resolution of Windows 10
We go on to the practical part to learn how to set the Windows 10 screen resolution. The process is extremely simple and you only have to touch a few parameters of the configuration part to achieve it. The route you must follow is the following:
- Go to Settings
- Enter System
- Go to Screen
Within these characteristics you will have to go to the Scale and distribution section, where you will find the screen resolution part. Here you will have all the ones that the monitor allows, from the most basic to the maximum (on which the peripheral itself will depend). This is to your liking and need, although if you accept a recommendation use those that are HD, that is, either 1280×720 or 1920×1080 if it can. This can affect computer performance and consumption, so choose the one that best suits your needs.
