Windows 10: Dual Monitors, Keeping Same Resolution

    Dual Monitors, Keeping Same Resolution


    I have a laptop with a resolution of 1600 by 900 and I am connecting it to an external dell monitor to duplicate the displays. 1600 by 900 isn't supported on the list of resolutions after the monitor is connected, so I created a custom one in the Intel graphics properties after connecting the monitor. It seems to have set the custom resolution, however the laptop display still is blurry and does not look like it does when the external monitor is disconnected. Are there any other settings that need to be changed? I do not care if the external monitor is distorted, I just need the full resolution on the laptop.

    I do believe it defaults to the monitor with the lowest resolution and duplicates that on the other monitor. Run in extend mode and it won't be an issue. Or run monitors that have the same resolution. I don't have any other solution, sorry.

    Then why are you duplicating the monitor? If you don't care about the external monitor's resolution, I really don't understand why you're using it.
