    Screen Resolution


    I just installed window 10.

    The screen resolution is so low I can hardly see the text.
    I tried to change the screen resolution like I did with windows 8.1.
    But it doesn't change like Windows 8.1..
    How can I change it?

    I didn't. But a lady from Microsoft install it (Windows 10) remotely and I don't what she did.
    Before she started the installation, she hooked up something that changed screen display variably.
    And she made the screen smaller, (we're still in Windows 8.1).
    As you probably know the installation took all day, so it when finished she was gone.
    Nobody cranked it back up since the installation.

    So I think your on to something here.

    Is there such a thing as variable driver?

    Resolution too low so everything is too small ? If it's too small that means that resolution is high.
    You can change resolution by going to ; Start > Settings > Display > Advanced display settings.
    You could also keep resolution but make everything bigger by adjusting Scale factor higher.

    Settings > System >Display > Change the size of text, if the slider is not all the way to the left (100% Recommended) move it there and see if it helps. Clicking Advanced display setting at the bottom will take you to a windows where you can change the screen resolution.

    Hello,

    I too am not sure if you mean everything is too big, or everything is too small on your pc.

    If everything is too big, I'm gonna go with the driver theory here. Could you kindly press the windows and the R key at the same time? A small prompt will come up. Type dxdiag in this and hit enter or press OK. A new screen will pop up. On the top of this screen, navigate to the Display tab and tell us the name of your card as well as the current displaymode (resolution). When we have this information, we can help you better.

    If everything is too small, please follow countmike's and alphanumeric's instruction and see if that resolves the issue for you.
