Any way to force a higher desktop resolution then active signal?

You can see from the screenshot that the display duplicated. Anyone knows how to achieve this in extend mode?

To switch from duplicated (mirrored) display mode to extended display mode in Windows, you can follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the Desktop and select "Display settings" from the context menu.
  2. Scroll down to the "Multiple displays" section.
  3. Click on the drop-down menu under "Multiple displays" and select "Extend these displays."
  4. Click "Apply" to confirm the change.

This will set your monitors to extend mode, where your desktop will span across the monitors, giving you more screen real estate to work with. Each monitor will display different parts of your desktop, allowing you to drag windows and applications from one screen to the other. If you have any specific configurations or issues during setup, please let me know!

1. Press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.
2. Type "regedit" and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.
3. Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SideBySide
4. Create a new DWORD value named ForceResolution and set its value to 1.
5. Restart your device to apply the changes.

Solution
Try Custom Resolution Utility or reinstall the graphics driver.
Download and install a third-party utility like Intel Graphics Command Center or NVIDIA GeForce Experience (if you have an NVIDIA graphics card). Use the utility to set your desired desktop resolution (e.g., 2560x1440).
Not all monitors and graphics cards support custom resolutions. If the resolution doesn’t work, try different settings or revert to the default resolution.
Forcing a higher resolution than your monitor's native resolution can cause display issues or damage your monitor. Ensure that the resolution you are trying to set is supported by your monitor.
