It can be difficult to finish your work when working on a computer because the content is too big for the screen.
It’s possible the computer screen’s resolution setting is too low. Knowing how to adjust the size of your computer screen can come in handy if you’re a professional who regularly uses a computer.
In this piece, we’ll go through the many options available for adjusting the size of your computer’s display, along with some background on why and when you would need to do so.
How Big is a Typical Computer Monitor?
The dimensions of the viewing area on your computer are known as the “screen size.” Your job duties may necessitate extensive use of a computer monitor. A smaller screen size may make your laptop more portable, while a larger one may allow you to see more of the screen at once.
Two or more monitors allow professionals to run multiple applications at once. Even if the individual monitors’ display sizes are varied, the sum of all of them would be larger.
In What Situations does a Larger Display Become Necessary?
When the on-screen information becomes too huge to be displayed properly, you may need to adjust your computer’s screen size. Content, like a web browser, seems magnified when this occurs.
In rare cases, the browser window may take up the full screen, although typically it occupies no more than a quarter of the available real estate. This is usually attributable to the screen’s resolution.
How crisply everything displays on your screen is a function of the screen’s resolution. Images with a higher resolution are crisp and detailed, while those with a lesser resolution appear fuzzy and enlarged.

If you right-click the mouse on the desktop, you’ll see a menu with many choices. Select “Display Settings” from the menu. Find this option in the menu, just above “Personalize,” which is near the very end of the list.

Method 2. Select the “Advanced” Tab When Configuring Your Screen.
If you select “Display Settings,” a new window will pop up where you may make adjustments to your screen’s layout. This window gives you with numerous options for altering your settings.
The “Advanced display settings” option is usually located at the very bottom of the window, so you’ll need to scroll down to access it. When you click this link, you’ll be taken to another page.
Method 3. Choose a Resolution From the Selection that Appears.
A drop-down menu labelled “Resolution” will appear once you select the “Advanced display settings” option. That’s up there, above “Related settings.” When you click this, a list of available resolutions will appear.
Your computer’s display size is dependent on the resolution value you’ve set. Resolution requirements vary from display to monitor.
Method 4. Achieve the Best Results by Picking the Right Resolution.
Select the screen resolution that works best for your device. The optimal resolution for your display will typically include the word “Recommended” next to it.
Choose that choice if it’s available; otherwise, try out several values until you find the one that works best. The resolution is correct when the display appears to be the suitable size for the computer.
Method 5. Select “Save and Apply Changes”
In order to save your new resolution settings, click the “Apply” button after you’ve made your selection. A drop-down menu labelled “Resolution” is directly below this one.
After the new resolution value has been applied, a popup will go up asking if you want to preserve the modifications or revert to the defaults. Select “Keep changes” to preserve the modifications you’ve made to the resolution.
