    Hello anticeon, :)

    Please provide more details about your issue.
    I was tried to connect my laptop to Sharp 32" 768p trhu HDMI, and Windows 10 can't detect and change resolution when i set to "External DIsplay Only" mode. in other mode it works fine.

    I am using WIndows 8.1 and Linux Mint 18.1 right now and both have no problem. so it only occur in Windows 10.

    if am not wrong this problem happened after Microsoft remove old display setting and use new Metro Setting.

    Im using Intel HD 5500 (Core i3-5005u iGPU - Latest Driver)

    anticeon,

    If you set the screen resolution to what you want before switching to "External Display Only" mode, does it stay set when you do switch modes afterwards?

    Nope, i tried. i set to correct resolution 1360x786p. then i swith to "external only" it changed to 1280x720p and the dropdown option in display setting is grayed out.

    Have you already checked to see if you may be able to change the screen resolution in the Intel HD Graphics Control Panel instead?

    if im not wrong it also limited to max 720p instead of 768p. i will try Win 10 again when they release the next Redstone.
    i hope Microsoft fixed it.

    the weird thing is in Linux Mint it chose the right resolution without doing anything, but i don't like linux
