    How to Clear and Reset External Display Cache in Windows 10


    The display cache in Windows 10 helps the computer to remember what mode and resolution to use when a particular display output is detected from a connected external monitor. This helps avoid having to manually apply all the settings again each time a specific external monitor is connected.

    Sometimes the cache may have issues, and you find that the display output is not working properly when you connect to an external monitor.

    If this happens, you can reset and clear the display cache to see if that fixes the issue. When you reset and clear the display cache, it will force Windows 10 to forget any connected external monitors and their individual settings stored in the display cache on the computer. The next time you connect to an external display, it will be treated as a newly connected display using the default and optimal settings again.

    This tutorial will show you how to clear and reset the external display cache in Windows 10.

    *note You must be signed in as an administrator to clear and reset the external display cache.



    Here's How:

    1. Click/tap on the Download button below to download the file below.
    *Arrow Clear_and_Reset_external_display_cache.reg

    Download

    (Contents of .reg file for reference)
    Code:
    2. Save the .reg file to your desktop.

    3. Double click/tap on the downloaded .reg file to merge it.

    4. When prompted, click/tap on Run, Yes (UAC), Yes, and OK to approve the merge.

    5. Restart the computer to apply.

    6. You can now delete the downloaded .reg file if you like.


    That's it,
    Shawn

  2. Clear the 'cache' in file explorer for already used picture tags?


    If you set some tags for your *.jpg pictures, the windows 10 file explorer shows them in the "details pane" on the right side.

    This list can get very long and with some wrong or no longer used entries.
    How can I clear this list / cache / suggestions?

    Or how can I stop the file explorer to suggests already used Tags?

    For the people the often have problems with the Store for one reason or another, and need to use WSReset a lot, they can pin WSReset to the start menu:

    Hi Destin,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps to clear the cache from Edge and check if the issue persist.


    • Open Edge browser.

    • On the top right corner click on the three dots


    • Then below click on Settings

    • Under clear browsing data

    • Tap or click on Choose what to clear

    • From the list check cached data
      and files, browsing history


    • And click on clear.
    I would also suggest you to clear all temporary files from your computer and check if it helps:

    • Press Windows+R key on the keyboard.

      'Run as administrator’.

    Projecting to an external display

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Windows 10.

    I understand that you are unable to use external display with windows 10.

    This usually occurs if the video driver was not installed properly or not configured correctly.so I would suggest you to reinstall the drivers in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    Uninstall Display Adapter drivers

    I suggest you to uninstall the display drivers and reinstall them in compatibility mode.

    To uninstall the driver, follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R
    • Type devmgmt.msc
    • Right click on the driver you want to uninstall
    • Click on Uninstall
    • Restart the system
    After the computer restarts, install the driver in compatibility mode.

    • Select the setup file
    • Right click on it and click on
      properties
    • Click on Compatibility tab
    • Select the operating system
    • Click Ok.
    Hope it helps, do get back to us if you need further assistance with Windows.
