    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Do you know what screen resolution your monitor display is set at?

    You can find this out by going to your computer's CONTROL PANEL ...

    START ==> PROGRAMS ==> CONTROL PANEL

    Then choose ==> DISPLAY

    From there choose ==> SETTINGS and you'll see the SCREEN RESOLUTION OPTIONS.

    If you're using Windows Vista, the path will be slightly different (not sure, since i don't have it), but i understand from the CONTROL PANEL you'll choose APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION to get there.

    The reason i'm asking is because i've been a die-hard 800 x 600 screen resolution user. The text is so much bigger, making for less strain on my eyes when in front of this pc. But in our chat room, in order to get maximum results, i need to be viewing it with 1024 x 768 screen resolution.

    So i've just changed this, and am wondering how you all view the site / chat / etc.

    Please share with me, so i can get an idea of how far behind the times i am! :)

    Vote in the poll above, and leave your comments below. Thanks in advance.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    I voted 800 x 600 but it depends on which computer Im using. I typically use my little Samsung media which needs at least 8x6 to run realplayer and adobe flash. The higher the resolution sometimes the slower my programs run.

    Its been awhile since Ive been in a chatroom so Im not sure what laptop to use for that.

    1024 x 768 on an HP 15" flat screen. For me, the better the resolution, the prettier the display.
