    Recommended display resolution is wrong


    When I open Display settings and go to Scale and Layout the recommended resolution is 1024 x 768. I got this problem with my old pc and also with my new one so I don't think its a hardware issue, unless its the monitor, anything I can do to fix this? This issue stops me from playing games in fullscreen 1920x1080, since i can only play stretched.

    :)

  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

    • 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.
