I am producing several software simulation tutorials that we will make available from our Website to both potential and current customers.

The easiest way to create these simulation demos would be to capture and use same-size screenshots at 1024x768.

However, before I start, I need to know what screen dimensions our viewers are most likely to have on their desktops and laptops?

1024x768 or 800x600?

Morton,

If you think that you will have any customers that are running at 800x600, it would be best to make your demo at 800x600 to ensure that everyone can view your demo.

Another option you have is to create two demos, one at 800x600 and one at 1024x768, and then have an intro demo that checks the user's resolution and based on that either launches the 800x600 or 1024x768 demo.

I always suggest making the demo to the lowest resolution that you think your customers will have so that your demo is accessable to as many people as possible.
