What Is My Screen Resolution?

Your screen’s resolution is:


What Does The Screen Resolution Tool Do?

The tool shows the resolution (in pixels) of your current device. It saves you time and effort as you don’t have to look at your device’s settings to find out what the screen resolution is.

For convenience, the tool also shows the height, width, and what your current resolution is called, e.g. Full HD.

Who Can Use This Screen Resolution Tool?

The tool works for every device, whether it is a desktop computer with a monitor, a laptop, a mobile device, or some other device with a screen such as a car infotainment system.

Note that this tool and all other tools like this have their limitations when it comes to handheld devices. It will show the viewport size and not the device resolution.

What Is My Refresh Rate?

To see your monitor’s maximum refresh rate, you can type in its model name in our Gaming Monitor List. Alternatively, if it has a refresh rate that’s lower than 120Hz, try out our IPS Monitor and FreeSync Monitor lists. You can also leave us a comment with your monitor’s model on any of our articles or via e-mail and we’ll look it up for you.

To check your monitor’s current set refresh rate, you can use this website. However, keep in mind that this website only shows the refresh rate your monitor is currently running at, not the maximum refresh rate possible. To change your refresh rate, you’ll need to adjust your Windows’ ‘Advanced display settings.’

Make sure you’re using appropriate inputs and cables to achieve the maximum supported resolution and refresh rate of your monitor.

What Is My Monitor Panel?

To learn what type of panel (IPS, TN, VA, or OLED) your monitor has, you can again try searching for your model in our monitor lists or leave us a comment. You can also tell by the monitor’s viewing angles.

If the image significantly shifts in brightness, contrast, and color when you look at it from skewed angles, your monitor most likely has a TN panel. IPS and OLED panels have the widest viewing angles as their image remains basically perfect regardless of the angle you’re looking at the screen.

Lastly, viewing angles on VA panels are somewhere in-between; you can notice some shifts in brightness and color at off-angles, but the image quality is still acceptable.
