  1. To Specify Display Resolution for a specific program


    I am running a software package that requires a much lower resolution and would only like to run just that program with that setting. How can I change the properties to open that way?

    :)

    To Specify Display Resolution for a specific program

    Setting Display Resolution selectively: Possible ?

    Hello,

    I have a program that shows an "active" screen.
    With my eyesight these days, a bit of a problem in reading it, due to its size.

    Came across a good suggestion that to make it appear larger, to lower the display resolution.

    Question: is this possible selectively, just for this one program and the higher
    resolution would remain for all the other programs, or it's a Global setting, an all-or-nothing ?

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
    (There are no "handles," etc. to drag the display that is showing larger)

    Thanks,
    Bob
