I should have said, my 4 monitors are all on the same PC. Monitors are cheap and the bigger the desktop the better!

If you're running xp right click on the screen and select 'properties', then click the tab 'settings' to find the screen resolution.

If you're running Vista right click on the screen and select 'personlize', then click the tab 'display settings' to find the screen resolution.

Does '1680 x 1050' make sense? Does that mean I have a big willy now?

glad you asked - I'm retouching photos on a dual screen Apple system and have just checked and found that one of them is 1152x870 and the other is 1024x768. That explains a problem or two.

Who's been messing with my monitors?

Think I'll set them both to 1152x870 as long as you guys don't do too much of that tiny tiny type

1280 x 800, but I tend to use control + and - to change it depending on what I'm doing.

Bump!

We're having a bit of a techie chat about how Downsizer appears on different displays, and we'd be particularly interested to hear if many folk browse DS on mobile devices with small displays.
