I have a desktop PC that I access using a laptop, both running Windows 10. My laptop has a 4K monitor that I set to display at 1920x1080 because 4K on windows causes the GUI to be a mess.

When I remote control my desktop through LAN, Teamviewer only has 1 screen resolution to pick from, 1920x1080, whereas using other laptops in the past I had many different options. This is a problem because I really don't need the high res, and the bad wifi connection can't keep up with it.

How do I set it to a lower resolution?


On the tab that appears at the top of teamviewer select the "View" option

From there you can change the Resolution

  • What option is that? – RyanIG Jun 29 '16 at 14:35
  • 1920x1080 under Optimal screen resolution, none under Other screen resolutions – Sunday Jun 29 '16 at 14:36

    Try updating the graphic drivers on your machine, if that doesn't work id recommend updating them on the machine you are logging into, i usually get a whacky resolution when logging into a machine that requires a graphics driver update. – RyanIG Jun 29 '16 at 14:38
