Setting up a new computer after installation of operating system and drivers is very important and you need to know exactly what you want and what you are doing.
Its quite handy for a person who has done it before, but for a new user it can be a quite complex.
But your operating system has it all for you,So in this post we cover steps to be taken.
Setting up Screen resolution:
Setting up screen resolution is very important without which you may not be able to view things clearly or in a better quality, but make sure you have installed your graphics driver already.
Resolution based on LCD monitor sizes recommendations
19-inch standard ratio LCD monitor 1280 × 1024
20-inch standard ratio LCD monitor 1600 × 1200
20- and 22-inch widescreen LCD monitors 1680 × 1050
24-inch widescreen LCD monitor 1920 × 1200
Laptop screen sizes resolution recommendations

To setup your screen resolution just right click on your desktop then click on screen resolution, check for the resolution marked (recommended). Usually the highest resolution your monitor can support.

Right click on your desktop and click personalize then click on change desktop icons .
You can select all the icons or exclude some as per your convenience, in my desktop as you can see I have excluded control panel.
