    Re: Windows 10 to add refresh rate to advanced settings panel

    How would this functionality work with refresh rate setting within the AMD or NVidia's own software?

    I would imagine the same as it does now (via the secret Windows XP window) - they both update the same number.

    They never removed it? It was also present in Windows 8 and 8.1. It's been 'added' to the 'new' Settings UI.

    The Search function needs a lot of work though, that's for sure!

    Re: Windows 10 to add refresh rate to advanced settings panel

    Question is, will they restore Windows 7's ability to dynamically switch refresh rates when invoking games etc? I've since got by with start menu shortcuts to toggle between 100 and 165Hz as necessary. Ye Olde Windowes used to be able to manage that automatically.
