    RefreshLock 2020 full offline installer setup for PC 32bit/64bit

RefreshLock is a lightweight but powerful monitor video output management application that can help users take full advantage of their monitor hardware by improving its refresh rate. In certain circumstances, obsolete video drivers or limitations placed by the OS can remove the ability to activate the highest possible refresh rate on your monitor, but those locks are precisely what this application can overcome. By the press of just a few buttons, this app can send the appropriate information and try to handshake a new video output signal that will carry higher refresh frequencies. As many gamers know, higher video refresh frequency, the games can be more responsive and enjoyable to play.

While modern monitors have a wide array of supported display modes, sometimes the most effective modes for gaming are not activated when you want to relax with your favorite game. Additionally, some users simply don’t know how to properly manage their monitor hardware and may leave sub-optimal modes that will not only reduce the game responsiveness but also lead to eye strain during prolonged gaming sessions.

Refresh Lock app is distributed online inside a small compressed archive that takes up less than 200KB in size! To access the app, all you will need to do is unpack the archive to any location on your local storage and activate the executable file. That will start the app that features a modestly-sized interface with both basic and advanced tools easily accessible. The center of the app is taken by the listing of the basic display modes, with a simple selector for the activation of override modes. The app features an in-depth Advanced Settings area for tight customization of display modes. One part of the app is the integration of screensaver support.

If you are a novice user, the developer of this app recommends to not dabble too much in Advanced Settings and just try to activate some of the modes available when the Refresh Override option is activated.

RefreshLock is 100% FREE and is available for the use of all versions of Windows OS, including Windows XP. The app is exceptionally valuable for users of CRT monitors and old GPU cards who refuse to automatically take advantage of very high refresh rates.
