Presently, my BlueStacks appears slightly blurry. By blurry, I mean 'not sharp'. Compare BlueStacks with my desktop:

The difference is subtle, but I don't like it. I think it's got something to do with the resolution. How do I increase it so that the items in BlueStacks appear sharp?


To change the Resolution of BlueStack:

  • Open ‘regedit': Start->Run->regedit
  • Navigate to: 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/BlueStacks/Guests/Android/FrameBuffer/0/’
  • Double click the value ‘GuestHeight’
  • Change Base to Decimal
  • Input your desired Height resolution
  • Double click the value ‘GuestWidth’
  • Change Base to Decimal
  • Input your desired Height resolution
  • Restart your PC, Open BlueStack [It will open up with New Resolution.]

  • I set it to 1366x768. My max display resolution is also the same. But still it appears the same. I even restarted my PC. – Farhan Anam Nov 14 '15 at 9:50
  • I used an app and saw that this really changes the resolution. It must be a problem with BlueStacks rendering. Thanks for the answer. – Farhan Anam Nov 15 '15 at 11:08
  • Well ! That's Great !! Farhan !! – BrotskyTv Nov 16 '15 at 4:01

Bluestacks now has built-in options for increasing resolution and DPI, which can reduce blurriness. By default, neither of these are maxed.
