Change BlueStacks App Player Resolution

There are several values ‘GuestHeight/GuestWidth’, and ‘WindowHeight/WindowWidth’.
The ‘Guest’ values sets the Androids resolution and the ‘Window’ values sets the window resolution.

  1. Open ‘regedit’: Start->Run->regedit
  2. Navigate to: ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/BlueStacks/Guests/Android/FrameBuffer/0/’
  3. Double click the value ‘GuestHeight’
  4. Change Base to Decimal
  5. Input your desired Height resolution
  6. Double click the value ‘GuestWidth’
  7. Change Base to Decimal
  8. Input your desired Height resolution

Repeat the process for the ‘WindowHeight’ and ‘WindowWidth’ values.

      Leave GuestHeight and GuestWidth at default 900 and 1440 in decimal, change only WindowHeight and WindowWidth to desired figure.

    Same problem as Raphael, screen size changes but the content doesn’t change. There is no “GuestHeight” or “GuestWidth,” only Height and Width in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/BlueStacks/Guests/Android/FrameBuffer/0/.

      Worked it out myself – Closing and opening bluestacks isn’t enough you need to seek out individual bluestacks’ process and end all of them.

      I also did not have WindowHeight and WindowWidth, so I left the Height and Width entries alone, since they seemed to control the height and width of the actual player, and then added GuestHeight and GuestWidth.

      So I ended up with these:

      Height
      Width
      GuestHeight
      GuestWidth

        Thanks Al, you are a genius. If it weren’t for you saying that you added the guestwidth/guestheight though I would have been lost. In the end, it worked like a charm.

      Oh, I figured with the help of some friends. It’s kinda obvious: we should put the BIGGEST number as HEIGHT and the smallest as width. The inverse of the normal widescreen resolution. Now it’s just about finding the right numbers, but 1200×1920 is almost optimal for me.

    I thought I would post my resolution settings for anyone who is still having trouble fitting it exactly onto the entire surface of the surface pro 1/2.

    Guest Height: 1024
    Guest Width: 1920
    Window Height: 900
    Window Width: 1600.

    This way, you can still have the window version and maximize when needed to fit the entire screen 🙂

    Good luck all!

      1. Close Bluestacks window.
      2. Go to system tray, look for Bluestacks icon that looks like this —> qoHlqS2.pngthen right click and select “Quit”. See picture for reference.
      3. Use the 800×600.reg file located in LP folder that you just downloaded.
      Open it or Double click > Yes > Yes
      or do it manually

      1. Go to Start and then type regedit and open it.
      2. Navigate to:
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BlueStacks\Guests\Android\FrameBuffer\0\
      You will need to change the values for WindowHeight = 600 and WindowWidth = 800
      To change double left click / right click and select Modify –> Select Decimal –> enter value (width or height)
      4. Start Bluestacks again with administrator. DONE!
