The “Advanced Display Settings” is a convenient option in Windows OS that helps us to change the text size or adjust the screen resolution. But after updating Windows 10 Fall Creators, many users notice that the “Advanced Display Settings” are missing in the Settings or Control Panel, making it extremely uncomfortable for users to make changes to their computer display.
There are several reasons why your advanced display setting is missing. First of all, your Windows installation files may be corrupted. Another reason is if you have bad video drivers installed on your computer. Some features have also been removed during the update. Your embedded graphics may conflict with your drivers.
