    How to make my laptop output downscaled custom resolution?


    Sorry if I get some of the technical terms wrong, I have a laptop (HP Probook 450) which has a display with 1366x768 max resolution, I want the graphics driver to output 1920x1080 on the screen, dont care if I lose some details,

    I want something similar to what happens when you set a game to 1080p in settings and it is the downscaled to be able to show on the screen, but I want something like that on the windows interface,

    Notes. I tried Custom Resolution Utility, did not work,

    and tried intel advanced settings but it tells me my monitor does not support advanced settings in intel control panel

    my laptop has the intel 4600 graphics and AMD HD 8750m , but I think the intel one is responsible for outputting windows

    Any help will be appreciated

    You can't, the 1366x768 is actually the number of physical pixels in the screen. Thus the maximum resolution.

    There is no point in downscaling 1920x1080 there is nothing to be gained. You just lose some quality and speed due to processing within the monitor (an external one).

    You can use a higher resolution monitor externally via the HDMI port.

    Thanks for your reply,

    I understand that the number of pixels is unchangeable, but I can change resolution of games to 1080p and the graphics driver will downscale them to 1366x768 , I want to do something similar,

    There is a way to do this on Linux but I want to know how to do it on windows. source:

    You can't -- MS Windows does not use XrandR, as does Linux.
