Windows 10: Display Settings (1366 X 768)

    Display Settings (1366 X 768)


    Because of certain programs I use I find that the display settings on my Laptop (Win10) set at 1366 X 768 is absolutely perfect for me.
    Consequently I am/was using, (I believe), the same display settings on my desktop.
    Now this is the second time after a Windows 10 update that my display settings have reverted back to the recommended settings of 1280 X 1024. This does not work or appeal to me because of my programs.
    Two questions:
    1. How do I prevent Windows 10 updates from altering my preferred Display settings? And why does it do this???
    2. How do I get my Display settings back to: 1366 X 768? It is not one listed among the 4 or 5 that are!

    Thank you

    That is a bit complicated, but you could disable updating drivers via Windows Updates.

    Driver Updates in Windows Update - Enable or Disable in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Windows tends to update to the latest driver, but that is usually a desktop driver, which can cause problems.

    Right click Start - Device Manager, select your display adapter and choose Driver - Roll back driver - pick anything - Yes.
