for simple queries you can use System.Windows.Forms.Screen class

if you need something towards screen resolution, you can use Win32 API ChangeDisplaySettingsEx(). There are few useful wrappers for C# which you can google easily

Hi DotNetThinker;

Here is how you can get the screen dimensions.

            Screen pScreen = Screen.PrimaryScreen;
            Rectangle bounds = pScreen.Bounds;
            MessageBox.Show("Width = " + bounds.Width + "\n" +
                "Height = " + bounds.Height);

If you have multiple screens then you can get an array of Screens by using AllScreens and loop through each one.

The documentation for Screens can be found at:
