Changing the Size of Your Desktop

You can configure your computer's display so that the desktop is larger or smaller than normal, by changing Windows's screen resolution. A larger desktop lets you view more things onscreen at the same time even though each item is smaller than before. A smaller desktop displays fewer items, but they're larger.
