How to Change Screen Resolution on Windows 11?


The pictures you see on your computer screen consist of thousands of pixels. These tiny pixels change colors to create a full-sized image. The screen resolution usually defines the number of these pixels on your screen horizontally and vertically. For example, if your screen is 1,440 x 900 pixels, it has 1440 pixels and 900 pixels horizontally and vertically, respectively.

You might want to note that your screen size doesn’t depend on the pixel size. It means multiple screens can have the same number of pixels irrespective of size. You may have laptops with 17″ and 15″, both with a resolution of 1,440 x 900 pixels. In this example, your desktop screen is more significant than the laptop’s, but this doesn’t mean you can fit anything extra on it. However, there may be a difference in the size of the things you see on your screen.

Now that you understand the importance of screen resolution, you will figure that incorrect screen resolution may make the text blur or invisible.

When you get a computer/laptop, you do not need to adjust the screen resolution because Windows automatically does the job for you. However, if you try opening a document and the text doesn’t correctly appear, you might want to troubleshoot and adjust the resolution.
