Step 5: Confirm the Change

Click Apply. Windows will prompt you to confirm the change; click Keep Changes if you’re satisfied with the new refresh rate. Otherwise, it will revert back after 15 seconds.

If the monitor supports the selected refresh rate, you should notice an immediate difference in visual smoothness.

Step 6: Testing Compatibility (Optional)

If you experience any issues after changing the refresh rate (such as flickering or no display), Windows will automatically revert back to the previous setting after 15 seconds. You may need to select a different refresh rate that is compatible with your monitor.

Click the “X” button in the top-right corner to close the Display Settings window.

Note for users:

Not all monitors support all refresh rates. Choose a rate that your monitor can handle to avoid potential issues.

Higher refresh rates are beneficial for tasks like gaming, video editing, and animation, as they provide smoother motion.

If you’re uncertain about your monitor’s supported refresh rates, consult the manufacturer’s documentation or website.
