Whenever i play some games in my laptop, I am unable to change the resolution of the game. It's fixed to 1920 x 1080. I tried to change it manually by editing the game config file but it doesn't work. There are no other resolution options in the game. How can i lower my game resolution? My laptop is Asus Vivobook R542U. It has both integrated and dedicated graphics card.

To increase your screen resolution:
Your laptop screen resolution at maximum is 1920 x 1080. You cannot increase this resolution because that is the limitation of the physical screen. You might be able to increase your resolution by buying a higher resolution secondary monitor, but it will put a strain on your laptop
To decrease your screen resolution:
- Make sure the game you want to play supports that resolution.
- Open the game and go to video options and change the resolution of the game to a lower one (if the option is there of course). If the option isn't there to lower it further than 1080, then the game doesn't support a lower resolution.
If that doesn't work or there is no option to change the resolution:
- Go into display settings in settings on your computer
- Look for the resolution drop down and pick a lower resolution there
- Load up the game and it should be playing at the lower resolution
