    Display resolution on monitor changing


    When I use "Extend" when after pressing Win + P, my monitor resolution is fine. But then when I close the laptop lid or make it "Second screen only" the resolution becomes worse. Not really sure how it started or when but I am sure it wasn't always like this. I will attach a picture of the same section of the monitor in the 2 cases. Lid closed or "Second screen only"Lid open

    :)

  2. Display Resolution for two monitor have different settings

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    The display resolution depends on the monitors that you have plugged into your computer. The display resolution modes will vary with each display based on the video card device, monitor size, video driver, and monitor driver.
    By default, Windows chooses the best display settings for your PC based on your monitor, so it is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor.

    To have better clarity on the issue, let us know the model numbers of your monitors, so that we can provide you the exact display resolution which is recommended to your monitors.

    Meanwhile, try the below methods and see if this helps.

    Changing the Display Resolution from Settings.

    Step 1: Right Click on an empty space on the desktop and click on
    Display Settings.

    Step 2: In the
    Display Settings window, scroll down and click on 'Advanced display settings' option under
    Multiple displays.

    Step 3: Then, click on
    Display adapter properties for Display 1, Display 2, or
    Display 3; whichever monitor you want to change the resolution for.

    Step 4: Once the Display properties pops-up, click on 'List All Modes' option.

    Step 5: Select a display mode that you want for the selected display and click on
    OK.

    Step 6: Then, click on
    Apply and OK for the changes to take effect.

    If these steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver by opening
    Device Manager, right-click on the monitor drivers, and select
    Uninstall. Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the drivers.

    Hope it helps.

  3. Help! Windows 10 changed my resolution and can't see anything!!

    Hi Etan,

    We appreciate you for being part of Windows 10.





    Monitors can support resolutions that are lower than their native resolutions, but text won't look as sharp and the display might be small, centered on the screen, edged with black, or stretched. It is recommended to set the screen resolution of the display
    to the (Recommended) native resolution to get the best display on your monitor. Your screen resolution needs to be at least
    1024x768 to have multiple windows and apps on your screen at the same time.





    Kindly follow the below methods and check if it helps.


    Method 1:


    I suggest you to set the Display Resolution on your monitor to the recommended level. Follow the below steps

    • Open the Start menu and type Settings in the search bar.
    • Click on System and select Display.
    • Make sure that you have set the Change the size of the text, apps and other items to 100%
      recommended.
    • Click on Advanced display settings.
    • Select the monitor and make sure that you have selected Resolution
      to 1920*1080 Recommended.
    If the issue still persists, then follow the below method.



    Method 2:


    I suggest you to update the display adapter then try to change the screen resolution.

    Follow the steps given below to uninstall and reinstall the display drivers.  

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Search for Display Adapters and expand it.
    • Right click on the Display Adapters and select Uninstall.
    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to contact the manufacturer to download the latest display adapters.

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Hi Kathy,

    This issue with monitor display can be caused by screen resolution problems.

    • Right-click on the desktop screen.
    • Select Display settings.
    • Click Display.
    • Under Resolution, click on the drop-down menu and change the screen resolution.

      Note: You can select the most recommended resolution (1920 x 1080) if applicable and see if the issue will persist.
