Features 4k screens
As you know, one of the most important features of a screen is the quality of the images displayed. One of the things that affects the quality of a screen is the resolution. Resolution is the number of horizontal and vertical pixels on a screen, and naturally the higher the number on a screen, the higher the image resolution. Full HD monitors have a screen resolution of 1080 x 1920, which provides a resolution of 2 million pixels. Monitors that support 4k resolution have been around for some time. In such monitors, the image resolution of 30840 by 2160 is twice that of Full HD, and in total its resolution will reach more than 8.3 million pixels. This has led to monitors that come with this quality to provide a clearer and higher quality image and maintain their quality in large sizes.
4k screen problems in Windows 10
For a long time, most computer system users used standard or Full HD displays that were fully compatible with Windows and displayed images correctly. But with the advent of 4k monitors, the number of pixels and image resolution has almost doubled that of Full HD monitors, and this has made the image seen in this type of screen very small and even unusable. Many applications are not yet compatible with this new quality, so the associated icons and windows are displayed smaller than usual. For example, in the image below, you can see an example of this problem, in which connecting a 4k monitor to a Windows 10 system makes the size of the items very small and the texts almost unreadable.
