Here are the steps to follow to set higher display resolution (i.e. more items showing per screen area);

shrink all visible windowsRight click with your mouse anywhere on the empty screen backgroaundChoose "Properties" from the enu that appearsClick on the "Settings" tabAdjust the slider "Screen resolution" to something like 1024x768 and ensure that "Color Quality" is as high as it can go without reducing the screen resolution settingClick "Apply", the screen will blank and if all goes well you will receive a window asking you to confirm the new settings.  Click on "Yes".  Failure to confirm in 15 seconds will revert to previous settingsIF percchance, you mess it up and select a value that cauuses your display to be totally unreadable, don't panic as the 15 second bail-out feature will switch your screen back to old settingsClick on "OK" and you are done.
