    I have a 24" screen (I know, I know, I'm spoiled, I admit ). The current displayed width of the topics in the forum seems to be something like 1024, that leaves about 450 pixels on the left and 450 pixels on the right unused... I searched but could not find a place to configure that. The previous board software(s) all allowed this... can this be adjusted somehow?

    This leaves room for your "To Do List" on one side and on the other your " I do not want to do list"

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    A lot of users with high-res displays are using their browser's zoom feature. As this can distort images (if images are zoomed) or layout (if images are not zoomed), it's not perfect, but if readability is an issue, then I would recommend giving it a try.

    I've no issues with readability (actually zooming makes characters too large AND while it makes things larger, it reduces the amount of text that fits vertically). All I want is to use my bigger screen more optimally; now almost 50% is just white & empty...
