    Hi! I have a 15' moniter. I have always wondered why 1024 x 768 resolution was so small! On my screen anyway ... The image is crisp and looks great, but everything is so small. The Bar's ... System Tray ... everything. It's so small. Is this normal or does it take so getting use too?

    sure it's normal. just like the difference between 640x480 and 800x600. everything gets smaller because there are a lot more pixels on the screen. you can go into your display settings, 'appearance' tab, and make the font size larger so you can read things easier. you can then click the 'advanced' button and manually increase the size of your icons and such. lastly, go into internet explorer and in the 'view' menu, select 'text size', and 'larger' or 'largest'

    hope that helps. }:>

    You can increase the font/text/icon sizes if you want in Desktop properties while maintaining a high resolution.

    The higher you go in rez the smaller everything will look. You resize you're fonts, icons and Shi... and yer done. But it also depends on the size of yer Monitor. 1024 X 768 will look tinny on a 15". But on a 19" or 21" they will look average.
