If we choose to click the full menu, it takes us to another window where different settings are specified. Among the settings we see the one that interests us, which is “Adjust screen resolution”. Once inside, we can change the resolution until it adapts to what we need. This is the way everyone knows, but there are several shortcuts to get to the settings and change the resolution of the screen in fewer clicks and therefore faster.

Choose the way you choose you should put in the search engine: Screen resolution . It directly takes you to the PC configuration and shows you the screen resolution settings.
