    Microsoft Free Games being booted back to desktop when playing


    I have two free Microsoft free games, one is Hearts Deluxe, the other is another hearts. When I open them to play and start playing they boot back to the desktop icon. I tried deleting one game and re-loading in Control Panel but the same thing is happening with both still. Any clues please?

    :)

  2. Can't play my pes13 game on my windows 10 professional PC desktop

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are unable to play game.

    I will certainly help you with this.

    Did you check the game compatibility with Windows 10?

    I would suggest you to go through the below steps:

    Steps: Try to run the program in compatibility mode:


    • Right click on the game icon through which you launch the game.

    • Click on properties.

    • Click on compatibility tab.

    • Check the box, run this program in compatibility mode and select the previous operating system.

    • Click on apply and then ok.

    I hope this helps. Please post back with the status of the issue and we will be glad to assist you further.

  3. Windows 10 ALT+Tabbing itself while playing games.

    Hi,



    It would be great if you can answer the following questions:

    • Does the issue occur only while playing game?
    • Does the issue occur while using any other apps?
    • Are you referring to Windows Store games or Desktop games?


    I would suggest you to make sure that the keys are not pressed by mistake. I would suggest you to restart the computer in clean boot and then try to play the game and check if the issue persists as clean boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    Note: After troubleshooting, see the section “How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot” to return the computer to a
    Normal startup mode.



    Let us know the results.
