    Question about my display resolution


    The recommended and native resolution for my monitors are 1920 x 1080 one I set my display to that my icons are very small, I did try to upscale and my only choice other than 100% was 125% and that made the icons to big. Is there a way to scale between 100% and 125%? I didn't know if there was some way to set something like 115%? I don't know if that would work well for me either however I'm trying to make it so the desktop is easily readable.

    Currently there very small so I might end up changing my resolution to 1680 x 1025 Unless anybody else has any other ideas at upscaling from the 1920 x 1080

    Settings > System > Display > Advanced scaling settings > Custom scaling > put whatever you like in there.

    You cannot change the native resolution of a Monitor it is always going to be 1920 x 1080, they are physical pixels in the screen.

    You can feed it with 1680 x 1025 however that will be scaled up by the monitor to the native resolution. In that case whilst items will look larger they will be squashed slightly as the aspect ratio is different.

    Thank you very much, I will play with the settings and see what looks the best
