Screen Resolution

Screen resolution is usually set up for you when you first start your computer

Screen resolution determines the sharpness of the pictures and text that you see on the screen.

There are several different screen resolutions you can use.

The most common screen resolution that people use is 800 x 600
That is the "default" resolution that most computers come with.
What this means is that the screen you are looking at right now is 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high
 

But for fine art and sharper photo's and other images a screen resolution of 1024 X 728 is better

This resolution offers 1024 pixels wide by 728 pixels high
More pixels means a finer more detailed picture

This resolution can be set by the operator of the computer fairly simply...
and changed back just as simply if you don't like it.

The worst thing it will do is move your desktop icons around when you switch back and forth.


Want to try looking at these photo pages with a higher resolution

right click anywhere on your computer desktop (not this internet page)

A grey box will appear

Click properties

Click settings

At the bottom of the box you will see a little slide bar on the left side

You can move that slide bar by clicking on it and dragging it to a different setting.

Each of the lines in the box is a different setting...
and they range from 800 X 600 to 1280 X 1024

Move the slide bar to another resolution and choose OK

Your screen will change.
(it may give you a preview or it may not)

1024 X 728 does take some getting use to when you first switch over
because icons become smaller and sharper

But once you've tried it for awhile... you'll probably never go back

If you do change your mind...
Just repeat the process above...
move the slide bar back to 800 X 600...
and click OK

And it will return you to your original setting.

Only thing that will change is the placement of your desktop icons

Enjoy
