QRes is a small freeware application that provides automation for the Microsoft QuickRes screen mode change in Windows 95 and 98. QuickRes allows you to change color depth and screen resolution without restarting the machine. QuickRes is built in in Windows 98, ME and newer versions of Windows 95 and can be downloaded as an add-on for the original version of Windows 95. QRes adds a front end to QuickRes so that you can automatically switch color mode or screen resolution when you start a Windows application. For instance, when you start a game that uses 640 x 480 pixels screen area and requires 256 color mode, you can make QRes automatically switch to this screen mode as long as you run the game and switch back to your regular screen mode when the game is over. ... QRes also works on Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. On these platforms QRes can switch resolution directly without relying on QuickRes, so that it also works if you do not enable the screen mode icon.
