Is it possible to change the screen resoultion of a tablet device? I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad A1 (A107)

By default it's 1024x600 px. I would like to simulate 800x600 and 480x360 for example.

Thanks. Sam

By changing properties you can often break a machine - I've done similar on a netbook and it never recovered; hacking (which may be an option) may not be a safe option! Also, can you explain why you want this as there may be software which can emulate this instead? – Dave Nov 27 '12 at 11:43

You can't. The resolution is fixed to match the actual device.
