+The 10.1-inch glossy screen features a resolution of 1,024 x 600, and is bright and pleasant to use.+
+If you find that some programs have elements which appear off the screen, the graphics drivers support a virtual resolution up to 1,600 x 1,200, allowing you to pan the larger-than-screen resolution around to find what you need.+

The quote above and several like it (Google "NB200 virtual resolution") led me to purchase the NB200 under the impression that this was an actual feature.

Neither the pre-loaded Windows 7 Starter nor a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium have resulted in any such feature being available. I've checked all the options in the Intel drivers and nothing seems to be able to enable a resolution larger than 1024x600.

Has anyone managed to find this elusive feature and if it doesn't exist under Windows 7 (which the netbook *was* sold with pre-installed) then why is it being touted as a feature?

Hi

I’m not sure what the guys meant by “virtual resolution” but usually there should be preinstalled tool called Zooming Utility.
You could increase the resolution (icons, display) pressing the FN +F2 and could decease the display again pressing FN + F1.

I think this was meant.

I'm not 100% sure but I think panning is enabled using a separate Panning Driver, but I can't see it listed so try installing the NB200 Display Driver for Win7. Download it from the US site: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp?nav=Download
