How to Change Screen Resolution in Windows 10

By default, Windows 10 will automatically choose the best display settings for your monitor on your PC but what if those settings are not correct, and you are having difficulty seeing what is on your screen? Then let us take a look at how to change screen resolution in Windows 10 and eliminate that stress and frustration today!

How Screen Resolution Works?

Screen resolution works by measuring how many individual pixels, both vertically and horizontally on your computer monitor or TV to determine the amount of information that will be displayed on your screen. At a lower screen resolution like 640 x 480, fewer items will fit on the screen, but they will be bigger in size.
