About Display Settings
Webpages look different on every computer


Webpages appear different on each computer. Although the computer hardware is sometimes responsible, most differences are due to the control panel settings. Here are some ways that you can improve the look of this page, and many others.

Display Settings

The display settings basically control the size of the "pixels" on your computer monitor. The display settings control how every webpage on the internet appears. This website is designed for a 800 by 600 setting, which is the most common.

Some people prefer windows icons to be larger, and choose the 640 by 480 setting. On the internet, this setting often causes the text and pictures to be too big.

Others choose a small setting, 1024 by 768 for example. This will cause text and pictures to be too small, not utilizing the entire screen.




Warning: The display settings may be set the way they are for a reason, changing them could affect how other programs are viewed. It is strongly recommended that you write down the old setting before changing to a new one, so you can change it back if needed.

To make this webpage look better you can try changing your settings to the standard of 800 by 600. On a Windows 95/98 computer this is done by:

1) Go to start and highlight settings.
2) Choose control panel.
3) Select display from the control panel.
4) From the display menu select settings.
5) Under display area you will see your current settings, change this to 800 by 600.

If you encounter any problems refer to your Windows 95/98 owners manual.



Font size

1) Go to start and highlight settings.
2) Choose control panel.
3) Select display from the control panel.
4) From the display menu select settings.
5) There you will see a font size selection. Change this to large font.
