    How to set compatibility mode in W10


    How do I set compatibility mode in Windows 10 ?


    I read an article which told me to 'enter run programs' and select one the options....

    so I enter the test (trying a number of variants) and even trying 'file explorer' the method I used to locate the file explorer and I get no response from the search. I noticed that the search engine was now 'corana' in stead of just searching the OS


    I can not run Age of Empires Expansion (Rise of Rome) because of some graphics error, direct draw not enabled, video card (built in intel) incompatibility with drivers or not enough video RAM. I am using a laptop that does not support all drivers for W10 - its an HP Pavilion dm4-1000 series, but I don't know which. W10 seems to work ok - I think the limitations are my own. So I thought I'd try checking compatibility mode. Failed at the first hurdle !


    AoE II won't even install properly !


    Can anyone help me to check or set compatibility mode for the said game? I will try to cross the other bridges later. I don't Cortana I want the previous search mechanism back !"

    Hi Harold,

    I suggest you to manually change the Compatibility Mode Settings
    and check the behavior.

    Please follow the steps below:

    • Right click on the app/program.
    • select Properties.
    • Click the Compatibility tab.
    • Uncheck the box Run this program in compatibility mode for and also uncheck all the boxes below.
    • Click/tap on the Change settings for all users button.
    • Again, uncheck the box Run this program in compatibility mode for
      and also uncheck all the boxes below.
    • Click on ok, then Apply and then again ok.

    Please keep us updated with the status of the pop ups to assist you further.

    Regards,

  3. Compatability with W10

    Has anyone produced a list of old programs which will still run in W10? I still use several programs which originate from the XP era including Microsoft Money 2002 etc. These run OK in W7 when using the compatability mode. Will this functionality exist
    in W10?

    Compatability with W10

    Hi Zigzag 3143, sorry for the slow response but been away for a few days.

    I did check the Microsoft W10 compatibility list and MS Money (Sunset deluxe) was checked as compatible. But every time I tried to run the progam it insisted I needed to install IE6 (even though I'd been using Money on W8.1 successfully).

    However, I managed to find a solution (more of a workaround than a solution) at the following link
