Widescreen notebook, internet sites distorted

by stevem291 / July 3, 2006 9:27 AM PDT

Hello all,

Just purchased a Dell E1505 15.4" widesceen notebook. It's running at 1680 X 1050 resolution. So far I love it, but I can't figure out how to view websites in a resolution that doesn't distort the pictures/graphics. I don't want to change the resolution since I like the sharpness on everything else. Is there an option in Internet Explorer to view webpages in standard screen resolution so it doesn't stretch it? I noticed that if I run active desktop as a webpage for my wallpaper that it displays pictures correctly, but when I run IE it likes to use all 15.4". Any ideas?
