Set Custom Resolutions on Microsoft Surface

Microsoft Surface comes with a high-resolution display packing millions of pixels for delivering as straightforward as possible to the human eye. However, it also causes issues when using software or old applications that are unaware of display scaling.

To fix the display scaling problem, software developers must rebuild their software to be compatible with high DPI displays. You can also fix this problem by adjusting your Surface’s display resolution and scaling to a viewable 100% display scaling. However, Windows 10 doesn’t include any 3:2 resolution options besides the default maximum resolution on your Surface (see image below).

There is no preferred resolution

No 1440 x 960 (3:2 aspect) is in the resolution list by default on Surface Pro 3.
