How To Change Desktop Resolution

Did you ever wish you could fit more on your desktop? You could go out and buy a

brand-new state-of-the-art 19 or 21 inch monitor, but it's a lot cheaper to increase your desktop resolution. The greater your

resolution, the more Windows 98 can squeeze on the desktop at once.

1 - Right-click the desktop on a blank area

2 - Select Properties from the drop-down menu

3 - Click the Settings tab

4 - Under the "Screen Area" there is a slider bar control. Drag the control to the right (more) and watch monitor sample.

5 - Click the "Apply" button and Windows 98 will test your new settings. If you see the screen and it is acceptable to you, press the OK button to permanently keep the new settings. If the desktop area doesn't look right, or doesn't display at all, do nothing for 15 seconds, and Windows 98 will return to your previous settings.
