How To Change Display Refresh Rate in Windows 10

Black Yellow Modern Multipurpose Youtube Thumbnail 2

A display refresh rate basically means, how many times per second the image will refresh itself. For example : If you have 120HZ then this means that the screen updates or “refreshes” 120 times per second. This will determines how smooth the motion appears on the screen. Usually the higher the refresh rate the better, but you need to be careful because every monitor has it’s refresh rate capacity.

Step 1

  • Go to minimize on of your windows, and right click on your desktop.
  • Left click on Display settings.

A new window pop-up will come up that looks like this :

Step 2

  • Scroll to the very bottom of the screen in the display section. Until you can locate “Advanced display settings”. Left Click on that.

Another window will pop-up that shows this:

Step 3

  • Scroll to the very bottom again, there you will find Refresh rate and what your current HZ speed is. Mine is around 59HZ right now as displayed in the screenshot below. To change you would just click the drop down menu and pick if you want the display rate to go up or down.
  • Also please make sure that you are on the correct monitor if you have multiple monitors connected.

NOTE: Some monitors may crash, (flicker etc.) if you increase the refresh rate to high. You would have to find what range best fits your specific monitor.
