Hi. Is there a way to exceed my old's lcd screen 1280 x 1025 max resolution, on windows 10 - 64 bit? Nothing extreme but I would like to go for a 4:3 1440 x 1080 (or around that area) for a particular program that needs it to work properly.
I know more modern screens are cheap and mine is obsolete, but before I get rid of it, I would like to know if there is a way. Any application or program or trick?
I'm using RYZEN 3 native graphic card Radeon Vega 8. No super resolution support for this one as far as I know.
Thank you.

If you have an NVIDIA GPU, you can enable something called DSR which will cause the GPU to render at a higher resolution but scale it down to the monitor's native resolution. It's not really useful outside of games.

I think AMD has a similar thing but I don't know what it's called.

Virtual super resolution. Won't help the OP, of course.

OP, you would need a new monitor. There's no software that can overcome physical limitations. The only workaround is software that will let you set virtual machines with a higher resolution, which you'll then have to scroll around to see fully.

As I mentioned it's called super resolution, but for a reason it's not present (maybe not supported) on my card's panel. Any third party solutions or trick?

What kind of software? I have no idea. If it's not dangerous for my graphic card I would like to have an idea and maybe experiment a bit if I can find it.
