If I desire to make modifications to displays on my system, just come down the system preferences and then click on the displays choice and by default MacOS will open a window on the internal laptop screen and all the external display screens connected to it. When I'' m looking at the settings for the show and build of the laptop computer, I have resolution alternatives for default for the display or scaled, which enables me to choose different choices to make things look larger or smaller that represent lower and greater resolutions. I have default for display screen like I had before and I can alter that to scaled and I see I'' ve got 5 various resolution choices, however if I desire to see all the available resolution choices that are available for the display, I can do that.
<< i><> Hi, this is Bob from Plugable Technologies. What I'' d like to do today is provide a quick demonstration of how to access some hidden resolution settings when you include an external display screen to a macOS system. Let'' s leap right in. What you see now is the desktop of my MacBook Pro laptop and I have an external display linked to it. You can'' t see it obviously, cause I'' m simply tape-recording my desktop however it is there. If I wish to make changes to display screens on my system, simply come down the system choices and after that click the display screens choice and by default MacOS will open a window on the internal laptop display and all the external screens linked to it. When I'' m taking a look at the settings for the show and build of the laptop computer, I have resolution alternatives for default for the display or scaled, which permits me to choose different options to make things look larger or smaller sized that represent lower and higher resolutions. If I desire to make changes to the external display screen, there'' s a window on it and that, again, you can ' t see today, however for the functions of this demonstration, I'' m going to move that window to my laptop computer display screen by clicking the gather windows button. It'' s popped up behind here. Let'' s bring that forward. I have a Dell U2412M display screen connected to the laptop computer and I have similar alternatives, but they'' re a little various compared to the internal display. I have default for display like I had before and I can alter that to scaled and I see I'' ve got five different resolution choices, however if I wish to see all the available resolution options that are readily available for the display screen, I can do that. There'' s a trick if you press and hold down the choice secret on your keyboard, which I'' m doing now, and then click scaled, you will see all the available resolutions offered for the screen. Quick summary. When you include an external screen to a MacOS system, it will just reveal you particular resolutions by default. If you require to access all of the offered resolutions, you can hold the alternative and push key on your keyboard while clicking the scaled radio button and you'' ll see all the choices offered. Hope you will discover that helpful and thank you for viewing.
