How to set your Desktop Screen Resolution?

Greetings, Welcome to Fixya!
So you need to adjust your Desktop Screen Resolution ey!!! It's a good thing you visited as today we are going to discuss just that.
We will be using our monitor to it's full potential, which will ensure we see the best picture our monitor can provide.

Follow the steps below:

1.)Right click on your desktop screen.
2.)A rectangular menu box appears.
3.)Select Properties, found right at the bottom of the menu box.
4.)Select the Settings Tab, found on the top right hand side of the window.
5.)On the bottom left hand side you will notice a slider bar under the heading Screen Resolution.
6.)Move this slider to the left to decrease the Screen resolution, less detailed, move the slider to the right to increase the Screen Resolution, more detailed.
7.)Ensure that the colour quality is set to highest, to give a more detailed and clearer picture!

Below: The window, see the slider bar on the bottom left and the colour quality on the right!

That should do the trick!
Now you will enjoy all the detailed, crisp, goodness that your monitor has to offer.

Thanking you
Till next time!

it does all the time auto adjust proceeding

I found a little trick about this problem...i had the same issue and the only thing that really helped me was..
•Go to "Control Panel"
•Select the "Adjust screen resolution"
•Now you have just to drop your Resolution BUT you have to do the trick here...
When you will press the Apply for the low Resolution in the same time while pressing the OK/Apply you have to push the button "SELECT" in your screen
Notice: Rember you have to do it in same time!

you cannot set the resolution to 1024x768 but instead try 1280x720 or if you have graphics card try to set the resolution using its custom resolution by setting 1280x768.
It will surely solve your problem.
