    Just curious what resolution people are using on their screens. Came about due to a fixed page that needs scrolling to the right when viewing at a resolution of 800x600, and no scrolling with a resolution of 1024x768.

    Trying to decide whether to get it so it adjusts automatically to the screen resolution. I was told that only 4.5% are viewing there screens at 800x600. I think that number is kind of low though. I myself have it set on 1024x768

    How about you?

    Easy answer is to set your tables to 770 pixels wide and center it (like we do on ABW).

    What monitor size do people have when viewing at 1024x768. I have a 17" and always have it at 800x600 and switched to 1024x768 and every site i went to seemed kinda small.

    I always set mine to 800x600 so I don't forget to do HTML work at a higher resolution. No scroll bars makes me and my clients happy campers.

    My resolution is at 1280x960. I prefer the higher resolutions. I am still wanting to hook up my PC to a 3000:1 aspect ratio plasma HDTV to see what that looks like. It'd be one hell of a monitor.

    Haiko: When it comes to me and dreamweaver, there is never an easy answer. That is one option I think I can handle though.

    Trusty: I am using a 20 or 21 inch viewable monitor.

    I need to find out where this guy got the stats of only 4.5 % are viewing at 800x600. It seems clear that figure is way off. I had a hunch it was.

    Actually, 1024x768 is pretty much standard on 17" CRTs and 15" flat panels.

    I said "something other" because I have 2 monitors, one at each of the resolutions.

    I often use windows smaller than the whole monitor, so I see lots of different sized windows.

    1920x1200 here, though we try to design for something much lower.

    From one site

    1024x768 48.91 %
    800x600 37.84 %
    1280x1024 4.74 %
    1152x864 2.62 %
    1600x1200 1.24 %
    1400x1050 1.06 %
    640x480 0.97 %
    1280x960 0.66 %
    1920x1200 0.34 %
    1280x854 0.25 %
    A bunch of others

    Bottom line is there are still a bunch of 800x600 users out - at least enough that you dont want leaving your site thinking you are an idiot.

    Those site stats are very helpful. My host doesn't supply those type stats, and I don't see it in "site meter" either.

    This guy who told me only 4.5 %....must be thinking of something else...

    Yea, I am going to correct it although its not all that much scrolling ( it's at 800 width but didn't take into account the vertical scroll bar using up part of that width). I never found sites where you need to scroll left or right very appealing myself.
