Tip of the Week: Change Display Settings in Windows 10

One of the easiest ways to customize your Windows 10 experience is by changing your device’s display settings. There are plenty of settings to change according to your specific needs, so this week’s tip will be dedicated to getting the most out of your displays, whether it’s a large new monitor or an old one.

There are a lot of options for changing your display settings. To access these settings, click on the Start menu and select the gear icon for Settings. The first option on the Settings screen is System, where the first option is Display. Here are some of the options:

Change Your Screen’s Brightness
Changing your screen’s brightness is critical if you want your device’s battery to last. There’s a slider you can use to adjust the brightness. Underneath this, you’ll see another option to turn on the night light. This makes the device’s screen turn to warmer colors to make it easier on the eyes at night. You can even schedule the night light to turn on at a specific time.

Scale and Layout
Under this option, you can change the default size of text and applications, among other things. There are several dropdowns under this heading that give you dynamic control over several aspects of your display, including the display’s resolution and the screen orientation.

Multiple Displays
One of the best ways you can get the most out of your monitors is by using more of them. If you have multiple monitors connected to your device, your settings will give you options for what to do with them. You can connect to them wirelessly, detect connected devices and so much more.

Before changing any settings on your devices, consult professionals at Advisors Tech if you have any questions about what they mean.

Overall, changing up your display can be great for both your device’s battery and your productivity. For more great tips and tricks on how you can get the most out of your monitors and displays, reach out to us at 844.671.6071.
