Hi, I'm Chris Bryce with superservice.com, and I'd like to talk to you about how to adjust your computer screen resolution. Now, to adjust your computer screen resolution, the first thing you're going to want to do is right click anywhere on available desktop space; usually around the center of the screen is what I tend to do. If you right click you'll come up with a menu, and you can go down to the bottom of the menu to Personalize. Now, in Windows XP this is going to be Properties. Go ahead and click on Personalize or Properties, and this will bring up a list of the available options to change your monitor settings. On that list you're going to want to go down to the very bottom and choose Display Settings. Now in Windows XP, this is just going to be a tab at the top of the screen that says Settings. Once you've clicked on Display Settings or just Settings in Windows XP, you'll come up with a dialog box that shows your screen resolution on the left hand side. If you go over to the slider bar you can adjust the screen resolution more or less, depending on what your needs are. In this case, we're going to be going to a lower resolution. Once you've chosen the resolution you'd like to move to you're going to go ahead and click on the apply button in the lower right hand corner of the screen. When you click on the apply button of that dialog box it will change the screen resolution for you temporarily, and you'll receive a message that asks you if you'd like to keep those settings. If you choose no within fifteen seconds your resolution will be restored to its original configuration. If you choose yes, then your resolution will be at the new setting that you've chosen. Then you can click okay, and close out of all the dialog boxes, and you've got your new screen resolution. That's how to adjust the computer screen resolution.
