Change Screen Refresh Rate In Windows 10


The Screen refresh rate is the number of times during a second that a device reconstructs its buffer. It means that your monitor will show the range of frames per second. Hertz frequency is used as the measurement at which the screen is redrawn. 1Hz suggests that it will draw 1 image per second.
If you want to get more clear visibility and less strain on your eyes then manage the refresh rate in high frequency for each display connected to your laptop or computer. When the monitor screen refresh rate is higher, then the display is smoother and sharper. You can change the screen refresh rate in Windows 10.
A combination of the monitor and graphics card you have got connected to your computer or laptop offers a range of display resolutions, most of which enables adjusting the screen refresh rate. Then, refresh rates for a display can depend upon the monitor, its driver, and also the set screen resolution.
Generally, a refresh rate of 60Hz is considered to be the best screen refresh rate.
