    Application Blocked from accessing Graphic Hardware

    Recently I've been experiencing the app blocked from accessing graphic hardware issue with a specific game I play a fair amount. The game seems to work but upon initial starting I would get clear audio but bad or no visuals forcing me to restart the game
    manually by shutting it down from the task manager. I have discovered a simple fix to this problem though, and it lies in the graphics settings for your display.

    To fix the issue I've been having I searched up and opened my computer's Events Log, to examine where the error was occurring and get an accurate description. (It gave the same message as the notification, this step may be negligible)….

    The next step in my process was to access my computer's system settings (for windows 10 the primary settings for your computer)

    Going there, select the display settings and look for a link text that says "Graphics Settings"

    Upon clicking on this, you will be presented with a graphics performance preference text and a drop down box that gives the options for a Classic Application or a Universal Application. I didn't fiddle with this at all but there is a browse button below that.

    Clicking this browse button I was able to select the application that was being blocked and I set it to always run in high performance mode. thus fixing my issue once I restarted the game in question.

    For reference I run an XPS 8930 with an Intel(R) Core i5-8400 CPU with 64 bit Windows 10 and an AMD RX 560 graphics card.

    I don't know if this will help anyone else, but a colleague of mine suggested I post my solution to the forums to help others experiencing the same issue.
