    You don't change it in IE. You would change it in Windows.

    If you have Windows 95 OSR2 or higher you can add the "QuickRes" utility to your system tray by going into Control Panels-> Settings and click on "Show display icon in System Tray". This will allow you to change resolution on the fly without rebooting your machine.

    If you have the original Windows 95/NT 4.0 you can download the QUICKRES powertoy from Microsoft to add the same functionality.

    I don't have any clue what you mean by changing settings of IE.

    If you want to see your site in other resolutions, go to control panel: display and click the settings tab. then click the advanced button and make sure the "show settings icon on taskbar" is checked. now you will have a nifty icon on the taskbar that lets you change resolution/colors on the fly.

    there are also programs out there that change the size of IE/Netscape to match that of resolutions.....even WebTV! I remember downloading one called BrowserSizer from http://download.com

    Good luck!

    Thank you ..I found the one on the task bar and can now switch with no reboot

    Which resolution do most people use....
    I use 1024 X 768...the person I am doing this web site with uses something else..

    the pages I do look great in my resolution but they still slide out so you have to scroll horizontally in his. I have set the tables to 100% got rid of the .gifs at the top of each section in the middle replacing them with text and the page still needs scrolling....HELP........somebody please HELP

    Hi,

    By far the most common resolution is 800x600...something like 70 percent of the market, I think.

    If your site is too wide in 800x600 it needs to be changed...you can afford to maybe ditch the 640x480 users...but not the 800x600 users...your site can't afford to scroll horizontally there.

    Table width it's everything...your content must take up more than 800 pixels...that's the problem...
