Screen resolution is all about how many tiny dots, called pixels, are on your computer screen. You can think of each pixel as a little dot that makes up the images and text you see. Now, these pixels are super small, so you can't really see them individually without some help.

The more pixels you have, the sharper and clearer the things on your screen will look. It's like having a picture with lots of tiny details versus one that looks a bit blurry. We measure the number of pixels in terms of resolution.

There are different types of resolutions like 720p, 1080p, 1440p, 2K, 4K, 5K, and 8K. These numbers represent how many pixels are packed onto the screen. The higher the number, the more pixels, and the better the sharpness and clarity.
