Preferred screen resolution in Forum
« on: April 06, 2005, 04:14:36 pm »
I have noticed that there is a variation in the screen size used in various postings. I use 800 x 600 but some postings seem to be 1024 x 768 or larger. Is there a preferred size to use so I don't offend anyone here. On my system the larger sizes require constant horizontal scrolling to read and is rather annoying. Just asking.

The best resolution for individual use will depend on your system - graphics card and monitor. On one system I use 1024x768 with a 17" monitor. On another system I use 1152x864 on a 19" monitor. At those resolutions, the same thing you are referring to happens. A few pages scroll off the screen, mostly due to large graphics being posted.

Olds will be able to explain this in more detail.

I use a 18"LCD (ViewSonic VG181b) and I have the resolution set at 1280 x 1024.  Almost never use the whole screen for IE viewing.
