    Turning a 17" monitor into a 7" one

    I currently have my carputer in my house while i set set up the skin for iGuidance and i want to check to see how the skin will look on a 7" monitor. I want to make lots of changes so constantly going back and fourth to my car would be a reall pain. Is there any software or option in windows that will allow me to use my 17" monitor as though it were a 7" one. Maybe something were I input the physical size of my lilliput monitor and that is the only potion of the 17" screen it displays on.

    Thanks for the help!

    Resource hog?

    Anyways, we answered that guy's question probably

    Or he can just change the resolution on his monitor.

    I have used Real VNC in the past, I think i will use it for this... That is a clever Idea...thanks

    Also changing the res wont get me the proper aspect ratio as my 7" is a widescreen
