Windows 10: How to set default refresh rate

    I've no control in the resolutions dropdown, and of course I can select the exact mode I want from List all modes.

    But what I'm trying to accomplish is for Windows to recognize 60hz as the default refresh rate when changing resolutions (when I'm not specifying the refresh rate).

    That comes in handy when running applications (mostly games) which let you select resolutions but not refresh rates. And yes, those applications do support the resolution/60hz combination I want for them.

    So that's why this thread is titled "How to set a default refresh rate". If it's no possible, then so be it. But I could swear that before the Windows Creator's update, changing resolutions didn't lower my refresh rate.

    You may be right there. So in such case it would be a matter of changing the adapter driver Creators selected for you. Try to use the old one if you can.

    Because there is no way I know of to change whatever setting outside of what your driver allows.
