Most of our Online and CD-ROM multimedia products were designed to run best on a monitor resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. If you ever find yourself having trouble reading text on your monitor screen or want to fit more windows on your desktop, you can fix this by changing the resolution of your monitor. Changing the resolution changes the size of your computer desktop.
