    Screen Resolution - RegEdit


    I just installed Windows RP on my Asus 1015 PX Netbook. I have heard of programs for Windows 7 that allow you to raise the resolution to 1152x864, but I have been unable to find one for Windows 8. I was wondering if there was a way to raise the screen resolution in the registry.

    Search in registry for:
    Display1_DownScalingSupported
    and change value from 0 to 1

    I have tried that already. It only adds the resolution 1024x768. If it helps, I am running a pretty clean Windows Release Preview 64 bit.

    Raising the resolution above the supported level will just make the screen scrollable to each direction, and not actually improve image quality at all. Any special reason you are trying to do this?

Awful Screen Resolution in Graphic Cards
In windows 7 my best screen res is 1280x800 which is great, however on windows 8 I only get two options 800x600, or 1024x768 which looks terrible, does anybody know why this is, and is it just because its and early build of windows or are Microsoft just being stupid.
I have installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview, but I can't the screen resolution of 800x600 to choose. Only 1024x768 is displayed which is greyed out and I can't select any other resolution. However, I have updated the monitor drivers and I am using 800x600 resolution in windows 7.
I want to change my resolution to my native screen resolution (1680x1050 60hz) but I don't have that option. instead I have to choose from 800x600, 1024x728, 1280x1024, 1600x1200, and 1920x1440 (at 64hz). How do I change it to my native screen resolution if I don't have the options there?
