Setting the Wallpaper on the Windows 10 desktop must fit the screen resolution so that it is not cropped, stretched, and blurry. When you use a photo whose resolution is smaller than the screen resolution, the photo will look blurry when used as a desktop wallpaper.

Likewise with an image whose resolution is much larger than the screen resolution, the choice is whether the image will be cropped, or drag it to adjust the screen resolution, the effect is that the image will look stretched.

On this occasion we will review brief tips for installing wallpapers on Windows 10 that fit the screen resolution of PCs and laptops to make it look better.

How to install wallpaper so it's not blurry

1. Make sure the display driver is installed

A blurry and expanded wallpaper display is usually caused by the display driver (VGA) that has not been installed, so first check whether the VGA driver on your laptop has been installed or not.

Open the Device Manager by pressing Windows key + R on the keyboard => type devmgmt.msc => click OK.


The Device Manager program will open, then click on Display adapters and see if the VGA driver on your laptop is installed or not. If so, you will see the name and VGA series that you are using there.

For example, if your laptop uses Intel HD Graphics 5500 it will look like the screenshot below:


If not, find the right driver and install it on your laptop. For users of 3rd generation Intel processors and above (i3, i5, i7), also install the Integrated Graphics (Intel HD) driver that matches the processor series used.

2. Set a resolution that fits the monitor

Next look at what the maximum resolution your monitor screen has, then sets the Windows resolution according to the monitor resolution.

3. Find a high resolution wallpaper

After making sure the display driver is installed and the monitor resolution is set properly. The next step is just finding a good wallpaper  you wish.

You can find free, high-resolution wallpapers from the following sites:
  • Pixabay - https ://
  • Pexels -
  • Unsplash -
Look for good images using the search feature on the site. You can use keywords such as nature wallpaper, mountain wallpaper, ocean wallpaper, beach wallpaper, waterfall wallpaper, and other keywords according to the wallpaper theme you like.

Download the wallpaper with the greatest resolution so that it is not blurry when the size is adjusted to the resolution of the laptop monitor.

4. Resize the size of the wallpaper according to the screen resolution

Next, change the size of the wallpaper that was downloaded according to the monitor resolution. For example, your monitor has a resolution of 1920 × 1080 or 1366 × 768 then change the image size to that size.

You can use a free photo editing application like PhotoScape X to change them one by one, or use a bulk editor application to change them all at once.

5. Set as desktop wallpaper

After resizing all the wallpapers you have collected it is time to install them onto the Windows desktop.

Move all the wallpapers that have been collected into one folder, then move the folder to the Picrure directory in Windows. Can also be in other places, this is just for convenience.

After that, click one of the wallpapers => select set as desktop background.


You can also right-click on an empty area on the desktop => select the Personalize menu => click the Browse button => select the desired wallpaper from your wallpaper collection folder earlier.

In the Choose a fit section, select => Fill.


You can also change the desktop wallpaper in Windows 10 automatically. You do this by selecting Slideshow on the Background menu => then selecting the folder for your wallpaper set.

In the Change picture every section, select the time you want the wallpaper to change automatically.


Done, until here we have succeeded in installing wallpaper on Windows 10 to make it look good, not blurry, and fit the monitor resolution.

A good wallpaper on a laptop screen can indeed change the atmosphere to be more pleasant. Photographs of natural landscapes, mountains, oceans, trees, and flowers can make the eyes that see them cooler.
