Change Screen Resolution without Re-bootingBy: Arie Slob
When changing the resolution or color depth of your display, Windows 95 usually wants to restart the computer. However, you can install a small utility (QuickRes) that allows you to change resolution on the fly. This utility is part of the Microsoft PowerToys.
Note: If you have the OSR2 installed, you can change the screen resolution without rebooting:
- Right-click the Desktop, and from the context menu choose Properties, select the Settings tab
- Change the resolution (and/or color properties)
- Hit the Apply button
- A dialogue box tells you Windows will now adjust your display settings, etc..., hit OK
- A dialogue box prompts with Do you want to keep this setting with the choice of yes/no. If you say no, you original settings automatically revert, if yes then close Display Properties.... Done
