Create a custom resolution and change the refresh rate on your Shadow
Creating a custom resolution can be used to rectify a resolution mismatch with your screen.
💬 Note: If you have a screen capable of displaying an image refresh rate of up to 144hz, know that Shadow is compatible with this mode. This article will tell you how to configure it correctly.
Create a custom resolution
First, open the NVIDIA control panel by right-clicking on the desktop.
Then go to Display, click Change resolution, then the Customize button when available. If this is not the case, then try changing the resolution to force it to appear.
Click Create a custom resolution on the newly opened window.
Enter the resolution and refresh rate of your screen in the corresponding fields, then click Test.
Your resolution will appear in the list of resolution options. Click Apply to save your settings.
List resolution and display modes
Right-click on your desktop, then click Display settings. As shown in the image below, click Advanced display settings then in the following window under Display information, go to Display adapter settings for Display 1. Click List All Modes, then your desired resolution before confirming your selection by clicking OK. Click Apply in the previous window to save your settings.
If you are unable to change the resolution, whether you are stuck at a resolution of 800 x 600 or the graphics card is disabled, the following will likely resolve the problem:
Right-click the Start menu at the bottom left of the screen
Click Device Manager
Double-click Graphics cards
Right-click the NVIDIA graphics card, then click Enable
Shut down and restart your Shadow
Change the resolution according to the instructions above
Change the resolution via Windows settings
If the resolution was not successfully updated using a custom resolution, you can also use Windows to carry out this manipulation.
To do this, right-click the Windows desktop and click Display settings.
Once in the settings, select the desired resolution from the drop-down menu and then click Keep to save your choice.
