Screen resolution affects the size of the desktop in all operating systems. More icons, word-processing lines, spreadsheet cells, and larger graphics in graphic developing suites are displayed on the desktop using a higher resolution. Resolution can be displayed as 800x600 resolution and some prefer 1280x1024 pixels. Currently, the most common resolution is 1024x768 pixels. Seeing more on the desktop increases productivity by eliminating both some scrolling and switching back and forth between windows. Ultimately, adjusting screen resolution can sometimes reduce eyestrain or otherwise improve viewing.
To change the screen resolution in Windows 2000, XP, and 2003 do the following.
Click the "Start" menu on the bottom left hand corner of your screen; select "Settings" and then "Control Panel." Double click the "Display" icon; click the "Settings" tab; click and hold down the left mouse button on the selector in the "Desktop Area" section. Move the selector to the left or the right to decrease or increase desktop size respectively.
