    Adjusting the screen resolution slider changes the icon size and text size but not the screen size
    Also I'm interested in 1280x1024 resolution but there's no such option (My screen resolution- 1360×768)

    Your screen resolution 1360x768 = 1.77x1 = 16x9
    your interested 1280x1024 res = 1.25x1 = ?? a strange screen size
    older monitors = crt's & older lcd's = (whatever actual size) = 1.33x1 = 4x3

    Why this 1280x1024 resolution?

    As is always the case, newbie posters expect us to be clairvoyants and know automatically what system specs they have.

    1280x1024 is an odd resolution but it is available on some systems depending on your GPU.
