How to Change the Display Refresh Rate on Windows 11

The refresh rate is estimated in Hertz (Hz), and it represents the number of times an image seems on the screen per second.

Typically speaking, the quicker the image changes (or refreshes) on Display, the finer and softer the viewing experience.

On the other hand, the slower the images refresh the screen, the less smooth the experience will be, generating screen flickering, headaches, and eye strain. In this article, I will guide you through the steps for changing the Display’s refresh rate using the Windows Settings.

Change the Display Refresh Rate on Windows 11

Click on the Start Menu and search for Settings. Once you get there, select System, on the right side, click Display.

Click on the Advanced Display settings under the “Related settings” section.

Select the optional refresh rate under the “Display information” section with the “Choose a refresh rate” setting.

Once you finish the steps, the System will apply the new setting, and the monitor will begin using the new refresh rate.

If you change your mind, you can always revert the modifications using these steps, but onย step 3, choose the rate you want to run your Display on.
