    I use to have my screen set to 800 x 600 resolution. I tried 1024 x
    768 but the program names were too small to see.
    Recently I found out that you can change the dpi (dots per inch) from
    96 to 120, making the filename text easier to read when using 1024 x
    768 screen resolution on a 17 inch monitor.
    Since changing to a higher resolution many of my problems have gone.
    It looks like most if not all video editing programs are written for a
    screen resolution of 1024 x 768. Some video editors don't state what
    the screen resolution should be. One example is when trying the demo
    version of Pinnacle Studio 9 I could only see part of the preview
    screen when using 800 x 600 but Pinnacle does not tell users that they
    should use a resolution of 1024 x 768.
    If your using a 14 inch monitor then you should upgrade to a 17 inch
    or more monitor. It's difficult to see the details in the picture on a
    small monitor and viewing the time line on a small monitor is also
