Change Screen Resolution in Windows 8 for Metro-Style Applications

This Windows 8 guide aims to display how to change screen resolution in Windows 8. Since metro-style applications require at least 1024x768 screen resolution, these new applications introduced with Windows 8 will fail to work with lower screen resolutions.

Right after you install Windows 8, you might want to run new metro-style applications which may fail to trigger. If new metro-style applications does not execute, the most possible reason may be your Windows 8 screen resolution settings. Let's start step by step task to set screen resolution of Windows 8 to 1024x768





When you are on Windows 8 Start Screen, choose Control Panel by tapping on application icon or clicking on it.

When the Windows 8 Control Panel is displayed, scroll down on the left menu and choose More settings item from the panel list.

switch from Windows 8 Control Panel to desktop Control Panel

This option will enable Windows users to switch from Windows 8 Control Panel to Desktop Control Panel. I believe with next releases with each missing item in Windows 8 Control Panel the need for Desktop Control Panel will decrease and probably it will be out in the Windows 8 RTM release date.

From the Appearance and Personalization panel group, click on Adjust screen resolution link button.
