Changing screen resolution in Windows operating system has always been easy. On Windows 10, Microsoft has changed the procedure by moving screen resolution options to the Settings app. To access it, right-click on the desktop, click Display settings to open the Display section on Settings, where you can change the screen resolution and other settings related to your PC’s screen.
Custom resolution in Windows 10
Usually, when you install a 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 10, Windows 8/8.1 or Windows 7 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 a custom resolution on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, and Windows 7 with ease. The tool allows you to 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 don’t have 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 Custom Resolution Utility does not support laptops and desktops that allow you to switch between onboard and dedicated graphics. That is, if your PC has two or more graphics processors, you cannot use this tool to set a custom resolution on it.
And the best part is, Custom Resolution Utility is a standalone utility and can be run without 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.
