Screen resolution refers to the sharpness of text or image on a computer screen. It is calculated by the number of dots vertically and horizontally.
Standard screen resolutions for computer monitors are as follows:
|VGA||640 x 480|
|SVGA||800 x 600|
|XGA||1024 x 768|
|SXGA||1280 x 1040|
|UXGA||1600 x 1200|
|QXGA||2048 x 1536|
The screen resolution that is used on a computer will depend on a number of factors including the screen size, the capabilities of the video card and the personal preferences of the computer user.
Because more information can be displayed when the resolution is higher, a web page can look very different depending on the screen resolution setting.
