“Advanced display settings” is a convenient alternative in Windows operating system that helps us to change text size or adjust screen resolution. But after updating Windows 10 Fall Creators, many users notice that “Advanced display settings” is missing from Settings or Control Panel, making it extremely inconvenient for users to make changes to their computer display.


There are several reasons why the advanced display settings are missing. First of all, the Windows installation files may be corrupted. Another reason is if you have bad video (* 10 *) drivers installed on your computer. Some functions have also been removed during the update.
