For displaced, misplaced, and nostalgic ex-Bronxites
Why can't I see the entire Bronx Board page on my screen?
You can't see the entire page because your monitor's screen resolution needs to be changed to a higher setting -- 800-by-600 or greater. Here's why:
Resolution is the width and height of your screen's display, measured in "pixels". (Pixels are the individual points that make up a picture.)
At a higher resolution, everything onscreen (text, images, navigation buttons…) is smaller, so more can fit on your display. If the resolution is set too low – at 640-by-480, for example – then the objects are larger and everything cannot fit on the screen. When this happens you have to scroll up, down, or sideways to see everything on the Web page.
Increasing your screen resolution will fix this. In fact, most Web sites won't display properly at a resolution of 640-by-480. So adjusting your resolution will actually make all your Web experiences more enjoyable.
Most monitors are automatically set at a certain resolution when you buy them. For example, older monitors are often set to 640-by-480. Newer monitors are usually set at a higher resolution, such as 800-by-600, 1024-by-768, 1280-by-1024, or even 1600-by-1280. You can change the resolution on most Windows and MacOS computers.
Here is how you can change your monitor's resolution, for Windows® and the Macintosh®.
