Custom computer screen resolutions

is it possible to increase your resolution to a custom level because my friend has a similar laptop with same size screen but his task bar is A LOT smaller and icons are smaller and you can fit more on screen

We might be able to tell if we knew what kind of system you have and what resolution you are running.. sys specs can be filled in the userCP.

Thanks
