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