Description: UIFriend is a handy Windows utility that makes it easy to change screen settings to fit each user's needs and whims. With just two clicks, you can change your monitor's screen resolution, color depth, and refresh rate.
With UIFriend's customizable menu, the display settings that you use most often will be available for you to switch between whenever you need to. It's easy to use the program's quick resolution changing feature to tune your monitor to your mood, or to the tasks at hand. The program also remembers the location and layout of your desktop icons, and it correctly restores them as you move among display settings.
UIFriend also offers a display setting management feature for multiple users that makes it easy to share a computer with colleagues or family. Each user specifies his or her display setting preferences and UIFriend takes care of the rest by automatically applying the settings as each user uses the computer.
UIFriend's desktop icon layout protection feature ensures that your desktop layout is protected from those frequent but unexplainable times when your desktop icons turn to scrambled eggs. You'll enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your desktop layout is protected.
The program offers advanced features that improve your screen aesthetics in many subtle ways. UIFriend's double buffering ensures reduced flicker and smoother drawing of the desktop. You can change the color of the text that appears below your icons, and you can make the text's background transparent. It's easy to start your screen saver to secure your computer before you leave it or mute the sound while your screen saver is active.
Whether you need to switch on occasion to a higher resolution to see more cells in your spreadsheets, you want to spruce up the aesthetics of your desktop, or you want to allow multiple users to create custom display settings when they're sharing a computer, UIFriend has the tools you need.
