How to use cru.exe to customize your monitor resolution and refresh rate




Have you ever wanted to change your monitor resolution or refresh rate beyond the default options provided by your graphics driver or display manufacturer? If so, you might be interested in trying out cru.exe, a free tool that allows you to do just that.




cru.exe



What is cru.exe?




cru.exe stands for Custom Resolution Utility, a small and simple Windows program that lets you modify the Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) of your monitor. EDID is a data structure that contains information about your monitor's capabilities, such as its manufacturer, model, supported resolutions, refresh rates, color depth, etc. By changing the EDID, you can trick your graphics driver or display into accepting custom resolutions and refresh rates that are not normally available.


Why use cru.exe?




There are many reasons why you might want to use cru.exe to customize your monitor resolution and refresh rate. Some of them are:


  • You want to improve your gaming experience by increasing the resolution or refresh rate of your monitor, which can enhance the image quality, smoothness, and responsiveness of your games.



  • You want to match the resolution or refresh rate of your monitor with the native resolution or refresh rate of your content, such as movies, videos, or streaming services, which can prevent scaling issues, stuttering, or tearing.



  • You want to experiment with different resolutions or refresh rates to find the optimal settings for your monitor, which can vary depending on the type, size, aspect ratio, and quality of your display.



  • You want to fix some problems or limitations with your monitor, such as missing resolutions or refresh rates, incorrect aspect ratios, overscan or underscan, etc.



Of course, using cru.exe is not without risks. You might encounter some compatibility issues, performance issues, stability issues, or even damage your monitor if you use settings that are not supported by your hardware. Therefore, you should always use cru.exe with caution and at your own responsibility.


How to download and run cru.exe




Downloading and running cru.exe is very easy. Just follow these steps:


  • Go to the official website of cru.exe and download the latest version of the program. It is a portable application that does not require installation.



  • Extract the zip file to a folder of your choice and open it. You should see three files: cru.exe, restart.exe, and restart64.exe.



  • Double-click on cru.exe to launch the program. You should see a window like this:



The main window of cru.exe shows a list of active displays connected to your computer. You can select a display by clicking on its name. You can also add or remove displays by using the buttons at the bottom.


How to add a custom resolution




To add a custom resolution using cru.exe, follow these steps:


  • Select the display that you want to customize from the list.



  • Click on the Add... button under the Detailed resolutions box. You should see a window like this:



This window allows you to specify the parameters of your custom resolution, such as width, height, refresh rate, timing, etc. You can either enter them manually or use one of the presets from the drop-down menu.


  • Enter the desired values for your custom resolution and click on OK. Your custom resolution will be added to the list in the main window.



  • Repeat steps 2 and 3 for any other custom resolutions that you want to add.



  • Click on OK in the main window to save your changes and close cru.exe.



  • To apply your changes, you need to restart your graphics driver or reboot your computer. You can use restart.exe or restart64.exe (depending on your system) to restart your graphics driver without rebooting.



  • After restarting your graphics driver or rebooting your computer, you should be able to see and select your custom resolutions from the display settings of Windows or your graphics driver.
