Monitor Settings

Many people don't know how to configure their Windows settings to take advantage of their high-resolution monitor. If you have an old 13" monitor, this won't help you, but most people now have 15" or 17" monitors with higher resolution capabilities. So, without getting overly "geeky" here's what you do to set your monitor to optimal settings.

  1. Go to your desktop.
  2. Right-click with your mouse.
  3. A window will open.
  4. Right-click "Properties".
  5. Right-click on the "Settings" tab.
  6. Click and hold the pointer in the "Screen Resolution" box and slide it to the right.
  7. Click "Okay".
  8. It will take a couple of moments, then your screen will reset. Items will be smaller than they were before, but will be viewed in a higher resolution.
  9. If you don't like the new resolution, you can reverse the process and slide the pointer back to the left to low-resolution.

Viewing Larger Photos On Our Site

Internet Explorer Users: Once you've set your monitor to a higher resolution, when you click on the larger photos on our site in the individual listings, they will pop on the screen at a large size and immediately re-size themselves to fit on the monitor. To expand the photo, move your cursor over the photo. In a moment or two a graphic will appear in the lower right-hand corner of the photo that looks like this:

Click on the graphic and the photo will expand to full size. You may have to scroll your screen to view the whole photo, but at least you will be able to see a larger image.

Netscape/Foxfire Users: It's much simpler for you. When you open one of the larger photos and move your cursor over the photo, a magnifying glass will appear instead of your cursor. Left-click on the photo and it will expand to full size.

We hope this is helpful to you!
