Solved Help me understand pixel display on monitor

Specs: Windows 7
I understand pixels per inch but I don't understand how they are displayed on a monitor. Obviously a lower ppi has larger pixels than a higher one and they display that way in a graphics program, but my confusion is how does the monitor display different sized pixels since the monitor is set to a fixed number of pixels?

In other words, the number of pixels per inch on the monitor doesn't change, so are the larger pixels in the graphic actually displayed by multiple pixels on the monitor?

(No reason I need to know, I've just always been curious...)

✔ Best Answer
Note that you should always set your display resolution to the native resolution of your monitor. Otherwise, the display is liable to be blurred.
