just a test exercise, but anyone may comment with the answer to...  
How much image width can you view on your screen with the normal setting you use, and without any sideways scrolling?

The image is 1200 pixels wide give or take a pixel...

FYI, I see about 1150 (laptop), 1100 (desktop), 910 on K's (older laptop)
Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn't mean it is good design.


One notch from 1200 on my laptop (so 1175 or 1150 I guess).

Ditto to OlJarhead....I'm just at the edge of the red "X" on the image window.  I can just see the box outlining the right side of 1200.  Laptop - about 4 years old on Windows XP and using Google Chrome.

The whole thing with room to spare.  I'm using a 24" HDMI 1080p wide monitor!  ;D ;D

About 1180 on a Laptop.


Older desktop, about 1050

I can see more than 1200 on my Dell 15" "wide-screen" laptop, and more than that on the big desktop monitor.

I recently set the width of the main page to 1040 pixels wide. This is supposedly covering the majority of monitors.

Some of our viewers are having to scroll I expect. How much of a problem is it, I wonder?

You should normally set the video resolution (Rt. click menu on the desktop) to the native resolution of your screen (usually the recommended setting). On my laptop this is 1366 x 768 and 1680 x 1050 on the 22" desktop monitor.
Once that is set, use the Ctrl + or - keys to enlarge or shrink the fonts for best readability.
