    What Is Your Screen Resolution?

    I'm doing some research and would like to know the resolution at which you run your computer monitor(s). If you don't know, you can right-click on your desktop and select Properties. Click the Settings tab, and the Screen resolution section will show the resolution you've got set. (That's for Windows XP. Vista is probably something similar.)

    Thanks for the input -

    For Vista, click on the Microsoft button at the bottom left, then select "Control Panel". Next select "Personalize", then "Display Settings". That will tell you what you have your display set to.

    I have 1280x1024 as it is the one that gives the best performance or so it says on the instructions leaflet.
    Best regards,

    1920 x1080. 22" wide screen monitor and 2 video cards. I do some gaming and like the detail and speed.

    Oh and by the way....I HATE VISTA. I want my XP back

    And on mac you can open "System Preferences" then "Displays".

    My iMac is running at 1920x1200.

    And this poll only allows me to vote once. ....

    ... This.

    My iMac is my home beast. At work I've got a dual-monitor setup and I'll have to post that info once I get in to work on Monday. I know that the smaller of the two is set to 1280x1024 (17" LCD) but I don't know what the larger 22" widescreen is set at.

    Now my creeky old (5yrs) mac laptop runs at just 1024x768, but that is just fine for a laptop that sees light use.

    I find all of these to be nice and crisp and give a good sized readable font for me. Actually, font size is probably one of the issues isn't it? I just have mine at the defaults, but you can adjust the font size regardless of the display resolution, can't you?
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    1024 x 768 but only because I run an ancient 17" Dell analog CRT (yes, CRT) at home. After working with computers for almost 30 years, I find no fascination with them at home. They are a tool. At work I run higher but, of course, have a better monitor/card/etc.
