So you want clarity of images and text visible on the screen, right? It’s only possible with the help of display resolution or screen resolution feature of the operating system. At high resolution, the images and texts look very sharp, clean and fit on the screen which gives an awesome look. On the other hand, while using a low-resolution images and texts look very unattractive and less fit on the display. So if you want clean and awesome screen it’s better to go with high-resolution settings or recommended settings which are always suggested by your intelligent operating system.

After installing a new Windows operating system (For example Windows 10) when you try to install graphic drivers, the system automatically set the recommend resolution. Even most of the time users don’t even visit these resolution settings to change the recommended or default screen resolution. But you might have noticed that while playing game or software, the game or software default resolution changes automatically and you need to restore the original screen resolution manually, which is actually the pain in b*t.

Yesterday while checking all the new features and system settings of Windows 10, I found screen resolution option missing in Windows 10 desktop context menu and you might know that in the earlier version of Windows, you can access screen resolution option just by right-clicking on the desktop.

There is a good news, the screen resolution feature is not missing and is still available but with the different name. In Windows 10, you can access Screen resolution option which is still available in the desktop context menu but with different name i.e. Display Settings. In simple words, when you right click on the desktop, you’ll see Display setting option instead of the Screen resolution. Now this actually happen because, to make things easier for (PC users and touch based device users) everyone, Microsoft has moved all the settings to the new Setting app.

Due to this changes made by Microsoft, changing screen resolution has become a very difficult task to do. But actually, it’s not difficult as it looks. Why don’t you check the steps below to locate display settings in Windows 10

    I installed Windows 10 over Windows 7. I have lost my screen resolution options, as W10 only gives me only two (the best is 1024×768!). In W7 I had more options and thus my display drive surely supports them. Anybody has some suggestion ? Thanks.
