Change Resolution in Windows 10

This Solution is designed to teach the user how to change the resolution for any display using Windows 10. Please note that any device you want to change must be plugged in and working. If your display is not working or you can't see the display you want to change in step 3, please enter a FixIT ticket so that the IT department can better serve you.

Access and Manipulate Resolution Settings

  1. Start by right-clicking on any unoccupied portion of the desktop.
  2. Select Display Settings and a Settings window should open.
  3. From here, choose the display you want to manipulate. (If you are trying to change the resolution for your projector, it will need to be connected and recognized by your computer.) You can choose the display at the top where it says Select and rearrange displays. Select a display below to change its settings. If you have chosen to duplicate your display, there may only be one choice.
  4. Scroll down to the Scale and layout category. Find the option for Resolution and click on the drop-down menu. Windows 10 will tell you which selection is recommended for your device if you are on a laptop (1366 x 768 for most district Windows 10 devices). If you are trying to change a projector's resolution, you'll want to choose 1024 x 768 in order to fill the entire Teamboard screen.
Note: You may notice when you are duplicating your display that there are black bars appearing on your laptop when you change the display to 1024 x 768. This is normal and when you disconnect from the projector, it should revert back.
Important: If you choose an option and you can't see enough of the screen to change it back, don't panic. The device will revert all altered settings after 15 seconds.
