What a great site btw, used it to help rid my computer of nasty malware, appreciate everyone who comments here.

To the question!

I was wondering if it is possible to be running a program in windowed mode, be on 1600x1200 res and have it visible on the program in 1600 res since you are windowed, but have your computer think you are on 1280 res or have it no report one at all to the program you're running?

I know odd question, but couldn't think of a better place to ask since I'm not very good with computers.

Thanks,

dsiii

no I probably worded it poorly lol, i'm the thick one :whistling:

Mainly is there a program or option w/in windows that would enable you to have your computer not tell the program you're opening what resolution you're using and just open the program in windows mode.
