Learn guitar chords for FREE through our new game Chord Master: In this video, Mahalo expert Justin Zagri shows how to customize the screen resolution and set up a second display for a Mac. Using a Mac - Customize Screen Resolution --------------------------------------------------------------------- Screen Resolution means the number of pixels that are on the screen and make up the entirety of the text and images on that screen. The pixels determine the amount of detail you will be able to see.A good, detailed resolution for most large screens is 1280x720. This means 1280 pixels cover the screen horizontally and 720 pixels cover the screen vertically.If you want to change the screen resolution for yourself, open System Preferences under the Apple icon at the top left corner of the screen and click on Displays.You have various resolution options you can set your screen to, including the following: * 640 x 480 * 800 x 600 * 1024 x 768 * 1280 x 720 * 1280 x 1024 * 1344 x 756 * 1600 x 1200 * 1680 x 1050 * 1920 x 1080 (this is the resolution for most large-screen televisions) * 1920 x 1200 You also have the option to change the Brightness by adjusting the appropriate slider.If you have a second monitor connected to your computer, you can adjust the settings for it under the Arrangement tab so that each monitor has a separate display in order to take advantage of the extra screen space, or you can mirror the two displays so they look identical. Mirroring can come in handy if your second screen is connected to, say, a laptop and you wish to watch something on the larger screen instead of the smaller laptop screen.
