Screen resolution on a headless server

I have a headless server running Windows Server 2012 R2. Whenever I log in, my resolution is set to1024 x 768. There are no other options available as no monitor is plugged into it. I have been looking for away to change the resolution so that it will be larger when I am working on it.

I have tried to set the advanced properties to a different resolution in the contact and computer list but that doesn't seem to do anything. I believe this is because there are no resolutions available other than the standard 1024 x 768. 

Anyone have a solution for this?

Re: Screen resolution on a headless server

I am using a dummy HDMI plug on my headless server. It maked the computer think it's hooked up to a 4K monitor, and I can choose from all resoultions up to 4K.
