When you close the game or switch back to your main desktop VidRes will restore the display settings to their original values.VidRes can change most display settings including the resolution colour depth primary display in a multi-monitor desktop and the current display in an independent multi-display system.Uses include: To switch between high-resolution modes and standard VGA resolution when playing older Windows games or applications that would otherwise only occupy a small area of the display.
