After update to Windows 10 or install a new build, the default screen resolution on Windows 10 is at a medium value. That’s the reason why the display of Windows 10 is always ugly at the first look. To make use all the advantages of Windows 10 UI (user interface), the first thing you have to do is to change the display resolution.

As you can see in the Customize your display window, there is a list of resolution values here. By default, 1024×768 is the recommended resolution of Windows 10 for your screen but it may not your highest resolution your PC can support. We recommend you to choose the highest value to make your display the best. Here we choose 1360×768 as it’s the highest value in our test PC.
If your PC has a Graphics Card, it’s great, because you can choose the most optimal resolution for your Windows 10.

3. After select the resolution you want and click Apply, a dialog appears ask you to keep this settings change or not. Choose Keep changes to apply the new resolution or Revert to keep the old resolution as you don’t want to change it.

Keep this resolution change on your computer

Now, everything is done. Enjoy the new look of Windows 10!
