Resolution Increments

  Junction 29 13:41 02 Jun 2003

I have a NVIDIA G-Force graphics card together with an Iiyama 1451 19" monitor, I would like to be able to use a resolution of 1172x864 but my display properties on XP allows only the resolution I was on 1024x768 & the next increment up is 1280x768 then higher. Is it possible to use the 1172x864 somehow? I have updated to the latest NVIDIA display drivers.

I don't know about the 1172 x 864, it may well be possible on some systems, but is not available on mine in Windows ME. The aspect ratio is slightly different if you do some sums. 1.35 instead of 1.33

If you want more screen space but find the fonts too small to read in 1280 x 1024, change the font sizes from the appearance tab for all text items. You can also increase the width of the scrollbar, active title bar, active window border, etc.

If you take some trouble, you can get exactly what you want. Save your desktop scheme under a new name, and save your existing scheme before you start, so that you can easily revert, should you need to.
