One word: abandonware -- wish someone would take it up to iron the tiny niggles it still has... It would then be absolutely perfect!

You can now download a .zip of Q10 from the site & not have to mess around with the .paf file.

billon on 9 Jan 2019
  • 93KB (uncompressed)

MultiRes works like an updated version of the venerable "QuickRes" applet for Windows 95, with administrative scripting facilities and extended capabilities to handle refresh rates and multiple monitors. Supported resolution and refresh rates are accessible from the command-line or from a simple menu that pops up from the system tray.

An optional timed confirmation prompt "enabled by default in the program About box" ensures that any changes you make can be reversed safely, without fuss.

Writes settings to: None
License: Free for personal use
How to extract:
  1. Download the installer and extract contents or the #setuppath# directory to a folder of your choice

I wish this was open source, so that I could get it up to date with win7 and 64bit. I only got 0.1 alpha to work with, but that's a huge step away from 0.4...
Oh well, still one of my favorite screen capture apps.

"Update 0.4.0: Added support for Windows 98..."
This is even more archaic than MWSnap, which was released in 2002 and at least officially supports Windows XP.
