what is resolution setting


You can find your resolution setting in the display options. In Windows XP: Right click on a blank area (no icons) on the desktop and go to Properties. Click the "Advanced" tab and your resolution will be on a slider about halfway down the window.

In Windows 7: Right click any area on the desktop (just like XP), but then click on "Display Resolution". Your resolution will be in a drop-down box in the middle of the window.

Another way to find it is to go to the control panel and open the Display Properties dialog in there, then search for it that way (using XP directions).
