you have will depend on your graphics card and monitor, but the
standard options are 800x600, 1024x768 and 1152x864.
Normally the default (in XP) is set to 800x600 which means the display will be 800 pixels wide and 600 pixels high.
This pull down box will contain the current colour options
available, again this will depend on your grahics card and monitor, for
best results select the highest option available.Changing the Resolution
