How to Set your Monitor's Resolution and Adjust Your Text Size

The tutorial was designed to fit on a 800 x 600 pixel screen without left-to-right scrolling. However, you will need to scroll vertically. The animations and pop-up windows were also designed to fit inside a 800 x 600 pixel screen without any scrolling. If you do not know your monitor's resolution, you may want to check it before beginning the tutorial.


To check your monitor's resolution on a computer running any version of Microsoft Windows:

  • Right-click any open space on your computer's desktop to bring up a pop-up menu.
  • Select Properties from the menu, and then select the Settings tab.
  • Under the Settings tab, you should see a slider labeled Screen Resolution.

The numbers under the slider is your monitor's resolution. Common settings, from lowest to highest, are:

  • 600 by 480 pixels
  • 800 by 600 pixels (minimum for viewing tutorial)
  • 1024 by 780 pixels (recommended)
  • 1280 by 1024 pixels
