  1. Click on the Display tab.
  2. Set the absolute size or choose Full Screen, and the Colors depth.

Some Considerations

  1. The fewer the colors, the faster your connection will respond. The greater the number of colors, the more attractive your screen will appear.
  2. Below are some guidelines for using SOAPware at reasonable combinations. We will start with 19" monitors, running a minimum of 1024x768, as this would be a minimum size for the SOAPware application.  These figures are approximations, but give you a very good idea of where to start.

Ensure that your video card can support these resolutions before purchasing:

Monitor Size/Resolution 1024x768 1280x1024 1600x1200 1680x1050 1980x1200
19" OK Good Small but usable - -
21" OK OK Good Small but usable -
22"  OK OK Good Good but small Small but usable
23"-24" Very Large OK Good Good but small Small but usable
30" See note below



30": At this point, you will need to make sure that your video card can support these resolutions, but Dell has a 30" monitor that will support 2560 x 1600 (digital only).
