Default 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:

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

Open the folder, you installed Prime95 to - usually C:\Program Files\Prime95\ -, select prime.ini, doubleclick it or press enter.
This should open the prime.ini 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 prime.ini file.
Done.
