is there a way to make my macbook display even lower then 1280x800?
2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Why would you want to?
Well, 1280x800 is a fairly low resolution already, so I'm wondering what the purpose would be.
You can change the resolution, if that is what you are after?
Or do you want a lower resolution display panel?
1280 x 800 is quite low for today, that was the resolution of a 15" PowerBook once (1280 x 854).
so I can have better display of my screen.
For example the menu bar not all of my icons show up
The lower the resolution, the grainier and less sharp your text and images will be. If you want to, anyway, go to System Preferences > Displays > Display and select the resolution you want.
If your Menu Bar is too full, not all icons will show. Changing the resolution to a lower resolution will make that worse, not better.
You want a HIGHER resolution then. Get a 13" MBA. You can't enlarge the native resolution.
yes, you will need a higher res.
Out of curiousity which macbook do you have?
Probably the white one from 2008.
Have you tried to go into the System Preferences and click on the Dock Icon? From there you can manage the size of the icons in your Dock an manage magnification options.
The Menu Bar is not the same as the Dock.
Thanks, yeah I know this, it's just I had a bad hangover this morning and must have read/comprehended wrong. Posting while hungover, not a good idea.
