    Notes

    A higher Screen Resolution reduces the size of items on your screen and increases the relative space on your desktop .

    Smaller items will affect the layout of the Web Site Design. As will larger items.

    Changes to screen resolution affect all users that log on to the computer.

    Your monitor and video adapter determine how much you can change your screen resolution. You may not be able to increase the resolution above a certain level.
