Change Display Resolution in Windows 11

Display resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images displayed on your screen. At higher resolutions, such as 1600 x 1200 pixels, items appear sharper. They also appear smaller so more items can fit on the screen. At lower resolutions, such as 800 x 600 pixels, fewer items fit on the screen, but they appear larger.

The resolution you can use depends on the resolutions your monitor supports. Old CRT monitors generally display a resolution of 800 √ó 600 or 1024 √ó 768 pixels and can work well at different resolutions. Modern LCD or LED monitors and laptop/tablet built-in displays support higher resolutions, such as 4K and 8K, and work best at their native resolution.

You don’t have to set your monitor to run at its native resolution, but it is recommended in order to ensure you see the sharpest text and images possible.

This tutorial will show you how to change the resolution of each separate display for all users in Windows 11.
