How to change the display resolution on your monitor?

Sometimes you might find that everything looks really ‘big’ on your computer’s desktop – big icons, big letters etc and at other times, you might have probably found it really too small to read comfortably. You can adjust the size of what you see on your screen by adjusting the “Display Resolution” of your computer.

In order to do that, follow the steps given below:

1. Right-click on any blank area of your computer’s desktop and select properties.
2. Click on the “settings” tab
3. Make sure “Color Quality” is set to “High” and then, under “Screen Resolution” set it to 800×600 or 1024×768 or higher, according to your preference.

Remember, a higher display resolution will mean smaller items on the screen and a lesser resolution will mean bigger! You should at least have a screen resolution of 800 x 600 – but most applications these days recommend a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768.
