How to Change Screen Size On Nintendo Switch TV?

Playing games on Nintendo Switch is fun but seeing the UI stretches on a display isn’t. You can’t clearly see the interfaces (inventory screen, map screen) and other options of the game. So you need to adjust and change the screen size on your Nintendo Switch as well as on your TV.

Why is my switch screen zoomed in?

There are many games on Nintendo Switch that will be more enjoyed on a big screen. But when you plug your switch console into any HDTV, it ends up with an overstretched screen and you can’t see the important interfaces of the game.

Your Switch screen can zoom in or overstretch on any TV because of incorrect video settings. Many TV has universal video settings that can easily adapt to any screen size and you can easily play your games.

But some devices have a different display ratio mode that needs to be adjusted manually in both the TV and Nintendo Switch. Once you set the correct screen size of your Nintendo Switch TV, it will display everything on your screen.

So without wasting any more time, let’s dive into how to change the screen size on Nintendo Switch TV.

How to Change Screen Size On Nintendo Switch TV?

First of all, connect your Nintendo Switch to your TV with the help of an HDMI port. If the interfaces are overstretched, cropped, and don’t fit on the TV screen size, then it should be changed on your Switch’s settings and your TV as well.
