Unless you are short-sighted or prefer to have enormous web pages, I would recommend anyone presently using their PC with an 800 x 600 resolution to PLEASE change it to at least the next setting up, which is 1024 x 768. You should have a much more enjoyable surfing experience. I say this as I have noticed an increase in web sites which are designed for a specific size, as opposed to a more universal approach! A prime example of this is a really well designed site called Hicks Design. Try viewing this site with an 800 x 600 res! Doesn't look too good because the scrollbars appear along the bottom. Maybe you're used to this already!!To change your screen resolution, follow these instructions:
- go to your desktop and right click
- choose properties
- then the settings tab
- you should see the screen resolution settings near the bottom left
- move the pointer in the MORE direction to your preferred setting
- that's it! You can experiment until you find a suitable resolution. Good luck!
