    AOC 2353 monitor, on windows 7 has a recommended resolution of 1920 by 1080

    when it is set here I notice even the desktop boots up quick and efficient. opposed to when it is set at 1600 by 900. which is best on the eyes.

    problem with 1920 by 1080 is that the folders and print are far too minute to see.

    this is with Intel onboard video, from the processor.

    is there a way to expand the text and folders? browsers can be zoomed

    would having a video card help?

    If you go into the advanced display settings, you can increase the size of items and fonts and can "bold" the text.
    I've got bad eyes, so I do this every time I set up one of my computers after I install the Windows operating system.

    The native resolution for my 27" monitors is 1920 X 1080.
    This is an example of what my desktop looks like after changing the display settings.
    As you can see, the icons and text are noticeably larger and bolder than they would be from using the default settings.
