If you want to go down in resolution ctrl+alt++. If you want to go up in resolution ctrl+alt+-.

This might enable virtual desktop. To eliminate that, just nuke the higher resolutions, assuming you want to go down in the first place, from your xorg.conf file. It should be in /etc/X11.

All that kind of bypasses gnome entirely (I've never really used it), and instead messes directly with your X server.

Hope that helps.

How much higher do you want to go? What resolution?

That's pretty crazy high already, and I don't know of many resolutions that are higher. Unless of course you have some sort of crazy video rig...

If you look in your XF86Config (/etc/X11/XF86Config) file you'll find a list of resolutions under the Screen section. Edit those to the resolutions you want to change to. The first usable resolution will be picked by X on startup.

Example:

Code:
Section "Screen"
  Identifier "Screen0"
  Device "Card0"
  Monitor "Monitor0"
  DefaultDepth 16 # <-- This correlates with which depth gets picked when you start X without telling it which one you want; make sure the depth in the subsection is the same as the default depth
  
  SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 16
    Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" # <-- It's these that you change; you can set these to pretty much whatever you want, X will try to compensate where it can
  EndSubSection
EndSection
