Can anyone tell me if there is software that can switch a monitor from 16:9 to 4:3 (and back again if required) at the click of an icon? I notice that a lot of widescreen monitors do not have this facility in their menus (although some do). Thanks

Thanks for the replies but I may be barking up the wrong tree. I was thinking of getting a widescreen TFT, but I was under the impression that all my existing software which looks fine on my existing 4:3 monitor would look squashed up on a widescreen. As my Daughter uses paint packages for her art, then all the images she is working on would also be distorted. Hopefully I am wrong, or it looks like I will have to stick to a 4:3 TFT, unless I can find some sort of aspect ratio switching software (if it exists)
