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

 2005-03-15, 03:21 #4 S80780   Jan 2003 far from M40 11111012 Posts 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.

u forgot to add restart prime 95 so changes may take effect.
