    Custom resolution


    I just upgraded to Win10 and the resolution does not fit. I have a 1440x900 monitor and none of the resolution options fit. None of them say recommended or anything. Is there a way to set a custom resolution?

    Hi @JMG787, welcome to tenforums.com!

    If you navigate in the Control Panel to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution
    can you not set it there manually?

    There's 4 resolutions that it gives me to choose and I can't go in between. I'm trying a method I found somewhere else but I don't know if it'll work yet.
