  1. Program specific auto refresh rate


    I'd like to know if it's at all possible to have some form of automation with launching a specific program that will change the monitor's refresh rate to a desired one for a specific app/program

    I have my monitor's refresh rate OC'd to 75hz from 60hz but when I'm not playing one specific game I'd like for it be 60hz native and when I launch the game switch to 75hz again.

    :)

  2. Refresh rate Problem

    Hi Robert,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    Screen refresh rate is the rate at which the data displayed on screen is refreshed; it may be an image or some text document. Most of the users would like to set it to a higher rate but this also depends on the capacity of graphic
    card and monitors. If the refresh rate is slow, the images on the display looks as flickering to the user eye and makes it uncomfortable to work.

    Nowadays the latest monitors available in market will have minimum 60 Hz of refresh rate and it is very good option to set it to 70 Hz if you your monitor is compatible. Normally a high performance or quality monitors can reach
    120 Hz of refresh rate. So I would suggest you to set your monitor refresh rate as higher as possible, below given steps describes how to access this feature on your Windows 8.1/10 PC.

    • The default refresh rate setting is 60 Hertz (HZ); however, your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information about the settings that your monitor supports.
    • If you use a higher refresh rate, you can reduce the rate that your screen flickers; however, if you specify a refresh rate that is too high for your monitor, your screen may become unusable and your hardware may be damaged.
    • Changes to the refresh rate affect all users that log on to the computer.
    I would, as of now, suggest you to visit the computer manufacturer's support website and install the latest display and chipset drivers available for the latest operating system (currently it would be 8.1 in the list).

    Hope this information is helpful. Please feel free to reply in case you face any other issues with Windows in future.

    Program specific auto refresh rate

    Forced refresh rates? Help needed...

    Hi try looking around in the Nvidia control panel for- "refresh rate overide" or something of that nature. I have ATI otherwise I would tell you exactly where to look.

    If you don't see anything (I think Nvidia might not have this option). Then download this program called Refresh Force I use it all the time. But I must warn you this Refresh Force for me lists refresh rates higher than my monitor is supposed to use. Although the ones that are listed in Refresh Force which I know are to high "work" I know they are not supposed to be that high though.

    So if you use Refresh Force make sure that you know the maximum refresh rate of your monitor first, then change all the ones that are above your maximum.

    I think you might have to setup Refresh Force each time you update your video driver but maybe not. Refresh Force is really cool because it does'nt install as a program or run in the background either you just set it and forget it.
