What are the ways to change screen resolution in Windows 7? What are the tips to fix the issues that may arise during the process?
Screen resolution is considered as the standard that determines the clarity of the images or the text displayed on the system screen. The images and the other options that appeared on the screen become sharper while the resolution is higher. At lower resolutions, the items would appear as big images and would not fit in the screen. The higher resolution limit is 1600 x 1200 pixels and lower resolution limit is 800 x 600 pixels. The resolution of the monitor is the factor that determines the resolution of the system screen. The larger monitor supports higher resolutions. The resolutions also depend upon the type of the video card possessed by the system. While changing the resolutions, the user can view the changes on the Windows 7 systems and is also provided with an option to revert back to the previous one if not satisfied with the new resolution.
