Project Screen Resolution to LMS Site

Hope all is keeping well! I'm new in captivate and worked on few projects for a software simulation and its working well but got a feedback regarding the screen resolution if its possible to have a bigger one. I'm publishing projects at 900x675, no TOC and no playbars and I believe its working well with different students but I know it will really depends on their laptops display settings and the browser they are using if its on 100% zoom. My current display is 1920x1080 and I'm happy with my view on the LMS Site

 

But having thought of it, if I would like to publish upcoming projects on higher resolution. What would be the best resolution to use? Im currently looking for - 1280x720 (16:9) a wider one or - 1280x960 (4:3) which I believe has similar ratio with my current project. How do you think this will affect the look on the LMS Site as well as every student? Will it still be flexible resolution for every individual? I'm just avoiding the scrollbars to appear on the browsers but I know even on 900x675 if they got a lower laptop display settings or even the browser is zoom in to let say 110%, scrollbar will appear. Thank you all and appreciate any feedback.

Most prefer a 16:9 ratio nowadays but you still need to take into account the amount of space taken up by the LMS to decide which resolution to choose for the Captivate project. You have chosen for the older 4:3 ratio (you cannot find a television with that old ratio anymore, nor a monitor). 

Windows has a power tool 'Screen ruler utility' which could be useful to you.

Thanks Lilybiri, that makes sense. I'm not also aware of the screen ruler utility. Thanks for letting me know.
