How to run windows 8 apps in low resolution netbooks

Windows 8 is the most popular operating system by Microsoft which is now being used in desktops, laptops, netbooks, tablets and mobiles. In this version, microsoft has replaced the start menu with start screen and removed the start button. The start screen looks more stylish and is customizable. Microsoft has provided some in built apps in windows 8 and you can download more apps from app store also.
These apps are running perfectly on devices with high resolution display, but if you install Windows 8 in any netbook with low resolution, windows apps don't run and following error appears : "The screen resolution is too for this app to run. Change your screen resolution."
The screen resolution is too for this app to run. Change your screen resolution
Now, what to do next. Can the apps not be run on your netbook..?? Well, you might be knowing that the solution for most of the windows problems are hidden in windows registry and here also, I'm going to use windows registry to increase the screen resolution of the netbook to make the apps run in the netbook.

Follow the steps below:

2. Now type regedit and press enter to open registry editor.
