If you find that text or images on your computer are too
small or too big, you might want to adjust your screens resolution.
Screen resolution is also referred to as screen area.
The effects of adjusting resolution is similar to zooming
in and out of a Word document. Increasing screen resolution
will make images on the screen smaller. The advantage is that
you will be able to fit more items on your screen. This is
a plus if you view large spread sheets on your monitor.
Decreasing the resolution, you guessed it, makes images larger.
The advantage is that text is much easier to read. Higher
resolutions sometimes cause text to blur.
Step 1: Right click
on a blank area of your desktop.
Step 2: Select Properties
from the menu
Step 4: Choose the
Settings tab from the dialog box that appears.
Step 4: Adjust the
slider in the screen area to change the resolution.
Step 5: Click OK.
Windows will give you a message telling you it will try to resize
your desktop. Click the OK button from the message box.
Congratulations. You are done.
Note: The size
of your monitor and the type of video card you have determines
how high you can raise your resolution, and the quality of the
images after it is change. If you have a 15" or 17"
monitor, images may become blurred if the screen area is larger
that 800 by 600. Simply adjust the screen area until you are
satisfied with the image quality. A screen area of 800 by 600
is standard for 15" & 17" monitors. 19" or
larger monitors can go higher.
