Windows 2000 allows you to customize your desktop and display settings. These settings control how your desktop looks and how your monitor
displays information. For example, you can:
Customize the colors and fonts that are used by Windows 2000
Customize the wallpaper image on your desktop
Configure a screen saver with a password in order to protect your work
Depending on which display adapter (video card) you have installed, you may be able to make additional configuration changes through the
Display Properties dialog box, and there may be more, fewer, or different tabs compared to those shown in the screenshots.
To configure display options, use the Display feature of the Control Panel. You can also access this dialog box by right-clicking from any
empty space on the desktop, and choosing Properties.
You can use the Advanced options feature of the Settings tab to control a wide range of options. The Advanced options dialog box allows you to
specify display font size, gather information about the video card driver, update and uninstall video drivers, set the refresh frequency of
your monitor, enable and disable hardware acceleration, and create color profiles.
