How to Get Stretched Resolution in Fortnite PC / Laptop

Posted on

The Fortnite Stretched Resolution guide will inform you how to stretch your resolution for Nvidia graphics cards. This one will also explains why this is starting to be used by pro players and streamers, and explain the benefits compared to the regular resolution.

Stretching your resolution has started to gain popularity in the Fortnite community. This one was a popular thing along with CS:GO, and now that Fortnite is starting to get more competitive, platers like Myth are starting to try it out.

What are the benefits to playing on the stretched resolution? A clear question is, why would you want to stretch your resolution in Fortnite? Here are several of the perks. First, characters show up to be larger (stretched), making them easier to hit. For those who have trouble with your aim, this one might help it improve. Second, FPS is improved. For those who are running on the lower powered PC, then this one is able to help improve your frames.


In case you are debating about what side to use, please check out these options. Remember that the lower you go, the more FPS you will get. However, it is clearly going to make the game look worse and might make it more difficult to play. Some people keep the same height, and change the width. For instance, if you have a 1920×1080 monitor, you would potentially go either 1440×1080 or 600×1080. Feel free to try some of these out and see which one works best for you:

  • 1024×768
  • 1280×960
  • 1280×1024
  • 1440×1080
  • 600 x 1080

Before starting anything, it is important that the Fortnite game has fullscreen selected. The thing will not work if it is not done. So, please go double check that and then get started with the rest of the guide.

In order to set up Fortnite, here is the instructions. First, press Windows Key + R to bring up Run. For those who have Windows 10, you are able to just type in the next part without doing this. Second, type in %localappdata% into the search bar and press Enter. Third, find the FortniteGame folder and click on it. Fourth, click on the Saved folder. Fifth, click on the Config folder. Sixth, click on the WindowsClient folder. Seventh, click on the GameUserSettings.ini file. Then, you will want to change the following options in the file:

ResolutionSizeX=1920
ResolutionSizeY=1080
LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1920
LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=1080

For those who have a NVIDIA video card, then you are going to go to the NVIDIA Control Panel that is usually in the taskbar on the bottom right of the screen near the lock. The steps are clicking on Change resolution, clicking on Customize, checking Enabled resolutions not exposed by the display box, clicking Create Custom Resolution, adding the custom resolution via this screen, checking the box for the resolution you just created, clicking on Adjust desktop size and position in the left sidebar, and checking the Full-screen option under scaling and choose the custom resolution under Preview, and clicking Apply.
