Adjusting the screen of the PC can be interesting to gain more space on the display of the notebook or desktop. The procedure is quick and allows you to change the scale of icons, texts and programs displayed on the Windows system. In addition, the tip is interesting to solve a common problem after formatting the computer, installing new drivers or changing the monitor.

The tutorial was done on a Windows 10 PC, but it is practically the same for other versions of the operating system.
Step 1. On the Windows Desktop, right-click to access the screen adjustment options. Then, select “Display Settings”;
Step 2. To obtain the maximum resolution and screen space, first click on “Screen resolution” and ensure that the maximum quality of your monitor is selected. In this example, the screen is Full HD (1920 x 1080p);

Step 4. To complete the procedure and maintain the resolution quality, click on “Advanced scaling settings”;
Step 5. Then, activate the key next to “Allow Windows to fix applications so they are not blurred”. In this way, the system maintains the chosen resolution, even in programs that needed to adapt its dimensions to the new scale;
