Screen resolution is a measurement of how much detail your computer can display. Detail on a computer screen is measured by how many pixels are along the width of the screen and how many are along the height of the screen. Most displays let you adjust that detail, up to a certain maximum. In This video, we go into settings and see how to change the resolution for your computer's display.
