Changing screen resolution in Windows operating system has always been easy. On Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1, you just need to right-click on desktop and click Screen Resolution to view the current resolution and switch to a different resolution.
On Windows 10, Microsoft has changed the procedure by moving screen resolution options to Settings app. To access it, right-click on desktop, click Display settings to open Display section on Settings app, on the right, and click the option labelled Advanced display settings to open screen resolution settings.
Custom resolution in Windows 10
Usually, when you install graphics driver or video driver, Windows displays all the supported resolutions under screen resolution settings. While it’s always a good idea to choose between one of the offered and supported resolution, at times, you might want to set custom display resolution on your Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 10 PC.
Custom Resolution Utility for Windows 10
Since Windows doesn’t permit you easily set custom display resolution, here is a tiny piece of software for the job.
Custom Resolution Utility is a free software designed to set custom resolution on Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 with ease. The tool allows you define custom resolutions for both AMD/ATI and NVIDIA GPUs. The downside is Custom Resolution Utility is not compatible with Intel graphics as Intel graphics doesn’t EDID overrides, a technique used by Custom Resolution Utility to set, well, custom resolutions.
In addition to Intel graphics, the tool also doesn’t support computers with switchable graphics, meaning laptops and desktops that allow you switch between onboard and dedicated graphics are not supported by Custom Resolution Utility.
And the best part is, Custom Resolution Utility is a standalone utility and can be run without an installation.
The software is certainly not for novice users and one must use this tool with caution. Visit the following page to read more about the usage and download Custom Resolution Utility.
