    Hello All!

    When should I go to a higher resolution with my monitor? I keep it at 800x600, even when doing my photos.
    Of what benefit is it to raise the resolution?

    MONITOR: 17", .22 dot pitch goes to (1280 to 1024).

    Larger desktop size gives you more workspace so you can have more windows open and view them simultaneously. You can also view more of your documents and other projects instead of having to scroll. Altho the fonts are smaller I prefer to keep my desktop at this size.

    I also usually stay at 800x600 unless I am working with a lot of pages. Then I just hop to the one that suits me at the time. I dont know of any special reason that one "must" change unless viewing a site or vid that requires it.
