My OS is "Windows 7"
I am trying to set up "New Mail" at Yahoo.
The only issue I am having is that every time I long into Yahoo Mail. I keep getting the following.

"Your screen resolution is set below our minimum recommendation. When it's set under 1024 x 768 pixels, the all-new Yahoo! Mail won't look as good.

You can continue with your current settings, but you won't be able to enjoy the full effect.

To continue to the all-new Yahoo! Mail anyway...

Go to Yahoo! Mail"

Or better yet, try increasing your screen's resolution. If you're running Windows, here's how:

Click the Start button, and select Settings, then Control Panel. Next, double-click Display and click the Settings tab. Use the slider to set your monitor to a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution.

I download and installed the latest display driver from Toshiba and set the resolution at 1366 x 768 to no avail.
Any help will be appreciated.

It looks like Yahoo mail is years behind computer standards...LOL
1024 x 768 is a standard 4:3 type screen resolution.
Yours, 1366 x 768, is wide screen resolution (16:9), so surely you can NOT set your display to 4:3 standard resolution.

I know what you mean. If I were them; I certainly would not. As I said before "It's going to be interesting." I'm going to call it know. It's a setting on there end that has been turned off. LOL

I just click on "New Mail" at Yahoo. It loaded just fine with no error messages. I never did receive any thing from Yahoo support concerning the issue. Why should that surprise me. LOL

Here is a new twist to this issue. I have three browsers loaded on the laptop. With Google Chrome I don't get the error. With Fire Fox and IE 8 I get the error message about resolution at New Mail at Yahoo. Why? Just curious?

It looks like your issue is at least 3 years old...hehe: http://www.yahoospec...list.html#links
Here: http://www.sevenforu...t-find-fix.html someone posted something about changing zoom level (toward the end of that topic)

I never received a message from Yahoo support concerning this issue. I did send them a message last night that I could view New Mail with Google Chrome only without getting the message about the resolution issue. Tonight when I went to logged into New Mail on Fire Fox for some strange reason I did not get the next page about changing my resolution on the computer.
It's just to funny. I think it is hilarious.
On a serious note it is about time Yahoo came up to date on this issue.

I was shocked that I actually heard back from Yahoo support.
The only thing that thy wanted me to do was create a screen print of the issue when it happened; the only problem with that is they had already changed there settings and the issue is not a problem any more.
The last message I sent to them I stated that I want to know why this was happening. Not that I am expecting a response. That would be to much to ask for.
I still think this is just to funny.
