Changing Your Screen Resolution
Most recent video cards are capable of supporting screen resolutions as high as 1600x1200, but most computers have their resolutions set at the default, 640x480. Increasing your resolution will give you more screen area to work with, and, since web pages are increasingly designed with higher resolutions in mind, can improve your browsing experience. Click the above link for a step-by-step guide to making the change.
Clearing Cached Files
Most web browsers store a copy of recently-visited pages on your hard drive in order to improve speed for browsing frequently viewed pages. However, if the cache folder or its contents become damaged, it can present serious repercussions for your browser. Here you will find guides to clearing the cached files for some of the browsers in common use today.
