  • Synopsis: Instructions for lowering screen resolution for better readability for the vision impaired using Windows Vista operating system.

Main Document

Today's computer monitors with wide screens will in most cases shrink icons and websites to minimal size for better resolution, sometimes making everything very hard to see and read, especially for the sight impaired.

The easiest way to make everything a little bigger is by lowering the monitors screen resolution just a bit.

These instructions are for Windows Vista operating system.

Tip: A good monitor resolution is when most websites fill your screen without having to scroll horizontally.
