  1. Hi im sure this is very stupid but how do i get a higer reslution desktop? which i think is the right thing, basically some of my friends have the desktop look much bigger than mine, which has nothing to do with the size of the monitor or anyhting... i know im being an ***** here but how do i do it?

    thanks toddy 89

    If you right click anywhere on a blank part of your desktop, and select properties, and then the settings tab. You can alter your resolution to whatever you like. Providing of course your monitor, and or graphicscard supports it.
