Modifying Percentage-Done Display?

Is there anyway to make Prime95 display more digits in the percentage done area? Its set to display 2 digits after the decimal. Is there a way to make it do 3 or 4? Thanks.

Sure, from the Undoc.txt section of the help file:
[quote]You can adjust how many decimal digits of precision are displayed in lines output to the screen. In prime.ini enter a value between 0 and 6:

PercentPrecision=n[/quote]

Umm...thanks, but how do I get in and edit the prime.ini file?

Open the folder, you installed Prime95 to - usually [i]C:\Program Files\Prime95\[/i] -, select [i]prime.ini[/i], doubleclick it or press enter.
This should open the [i]prime.ini[/i] file with an editor.
Type in the quoted line, replacing n by the preferred value, and press enter.
Close the editor and confirm to save the [i]prime.ini[/i] file.
Done.
