Change The Resolution On An IGEL Thin With The Universal Management Suite

When you first turn on the IGEL client the resolution out of the box iss 800 x 600. Obviously this is not high enough. Most people will want to customise the resolution to be based on the monitors that the IGEL thin clients are connected to. This can be done with the IGEL Universal Management Suite installation. There is also a video guide at the end of the article.
