    Hi, I have 10 custom resolutions (for downsampling and to force different refreshrates) and I have to re-create one by one every time I install a new driver version.

    Is there a way to save/load those resolutions?

    Does CRU fix this problem?

    have you tried creating a new custom resolution, and then doing a windows search by file date modified? should help tracking the file that is modified with custom resolution data.

    CRU does allow you to export your modifications to a file, which you can then import again after driver updates.

    However, CRU is an EDID editor, meaning there's a limit to the amount of resolutions you can add. Read the CRU documentation to see which resolutions to put where.

    Your and my friend is NvCRBT. I always use this tool to restore all my res after the driver install. Even better! This utility can restart your driver on fly! I have to use this feature a lot since nv drivers are somehow stuck on idle 3D clock many times in windows. Not just for me but for lot of us.

    You can make as many new res with different refresh rate as you like.
    Don't forget to run as admin!

    I used to use this before and it worked well. It doesn't work anymore for me though with the latest Windows 10 drivers.
