Windows automatically sets best screen resolution for you. But if you want to set it manually, here's how to change screen resolution in Windows 10.

In Windows 10, screen resolution determines how much pixels to display on the screen. It is usually quoted or mentioned in width × height format. For example, if the screen or display resolution is 1920 x 1080, then width of pixels is 1920 and height of pixels is 1080.
