    What has happened to the quickres icon that win98 had allowing you to switch resolution on the fly. I know it can still be done but it was so much easier with the little icon in the tray.

    Did I overlook something when setting up?

    Sorry if this question is in the wrong area, I really don't know what area it would fall under.

    Merry Christmas

    Download and install MultiRes. It's a freeware alternative to QuickRes.

    I spoke too fast. I have found a nice utility from PC-Mag that does what quickres did and more.

    do you really need to switch all the time ?

    No I don't need to switch all the time but it is handy now and again especially on the web as some pages are better 800x600 but then you hit a site that was designed at 1024x768. I find it a pain an the butt to scroll across the bottom while trying to read something.

    Another reason for using a utility like this is that I'm not the only one using this computer. I know, user accounts, but that's a little too much for a home computer, I think.
