What Would It Be Like to Watch 4K 60FPS Videos on a Windows 10 PC?
The number of pixels across a 4K (more correctly, UHD) video file's horizontal dimension is around 4000. Its resolution, 4096X2160, is 4 times of the pixels that 'Full HD' (1920 x 1080 or 1080p) offers and 2.25 times of 'WQHD' (2560 x 1440). Watching 4K videos on Windows 10 computers means clarity and 'real estate'.
In most cases, the screen size of a desktop computer ranges from 15 to 19 inches. A 4K display can reach a resolution of 3840X2160 at 16:9 image ratio. Microsoft did make an effort to keep up with high-resolution displays in Windows 8.1, as it added scaling as high as 200 percent of the standard; in Windows 10, it has been improved to be smoother for Windows 10 ultraHD resolution display support to ensure the best experience at 4K resolutions and beyond. Besides, the MKV and HEVC/H.265 codecs have been added in Windows 10 to support 4K video playing.
Note: Some 4K display users are complaining about the reduced character captions. Actually, 4K display scaling is needed in Windows 10. A UHD video or image can be perfectly shown on Windows 10 by Settings > System > Display. You can select '100%', '125%', '150%', '175%', '200%', '225%', '250%', '300%' or '350%' among the scaling options. (See How to Manage 4K Display Scaling in Windows 10)
