Find the Right Screen Resolution For You

Many a time, our nifty new computers are shipped out with a variety of default settings; one of these being the screen resolution. Screen resolution is measured in pixels and when the resolution is increased or decreased, the size and amount of pixels displayed on the screen increases and decreases respectively.

By upping the resolution, we also increase the amount of screen space available because everything becomes smaller. This would be a common, and relatively simple, solution when one is fed up with scroll bars on webpages or minimal task bar real estate.

First, investigate which resolutions are supported by your monitor and which resolution is considered "native"; this is the resolution at which the monitor was designed for and aesthetically looks the nicest. Then, by Right Clicking on the Desktop > clicking on Properties > and selecting the Settings tab, you can alter the screen resolution to the dimensions of your desire.
