The higher the resolution, the smaller everything appears on your screen, and the more you can see. The lower the resolution, the larger everything appears on your screen, and the less you can see. Monitor resolution is generally measured by the number of pixels on the horizontal axis of your screen versus the number of pixels on the vertical axis i.e. 640x800, 800x600, 1024x768.
