In my opinion it would be a great idea if we were able to change the size of the computer monitors, either in game or fro, config file.
For example, the monitor default resolution is 50 x 19 if I ain't wrong. It would be cool if we could change the resolution somewhere to make the screen wider.

I like the idea. The problem is that some programs are coded to run specifically on a 51x19 screen, so then they must be updated.
But most widely-used programs don't, they adapt to the size, so I think this could be good (if it can be modified from a computer and not only from the config file).

Different display sizes have been a thing for as long as I've been playing with the mod. Turtles, external monitors, regular displays, and more recently, pocket computers + multishell tabs...

It actually used to be possible to change it via config files, I can't remember why it was removed.

We were never told why, but it happened when Pocket Computers were introduced.
