Microsoft adds refresh rate option in Windows 10 settings

Microsoft has continued its push to move the Windows 10 configuration options in their modern Settings feature.

Microsoft introduced a new Settings feature having many of the configuration options of the operating system in Windows 8.

However, the Settings section has remained incomplete since the launch with many options of configurations and settings located in the Control Panel and device manager.

Microsoft has been working to migrate all the settings of Windows 10 to the Settings app. The migration started with the System control panel in the month of July this year with a new Disk Management tool in the month of August and redirecting ‘Program and Features’ control panel to the modern ‘Apps & Features’ Settings page in the month of September this year.

Windows 10 can adjust the monitor refresh rate but it is done by the properties of display adapter instead of the Settings feature.

As the Windows 10 preview build 20236 has been released, Microsoft has added a new setting in the ‘Advanced display settings’ that allows the user to change the Refresh rate of the monitor.

With the help of this setting, users of Windows 10 can adjust the monitors to use a higher supported refresh rate. A high refresh rate will decrease screen flickering and make it easier for user’s eyes.

It is normally possible to adjust the refresh rate of the screen but adding it in the ‘Advanced display settings’ screen makes it easier to find for more people.

It is an indication of the desire of Microsoft to consolidate the settings of Windows 10 in one location instead of spreading between numerous features.
