    Not able to launch any game in fullscreen without pc freezing


    Whenever i launch a game that i have enabled full-screen on, my computer simply freezes and i can't do anything other than to force shut-down my computer by holding down the power button.
    This started to happen after i changed from Gtx 680 to Gtx 1070.
    All my drivers are in the newest version (i installed all the newest ones 1 hour before making this post and games still crashed)
    However i am able to play games in windowed or borderless mode without any problems.

    :)

  2. How do I screenshot a fullscreen program/game?

    I always used to be able to use 'print screen' to screenshot anything, including fullscreen games, but a while ago, it stopped working.

    I can still get screenshots of windowed programs, and the desktop, but fullscreen programs or games just end up with a big white box instead of a screenshot.

    Is there any way to get it working again without installing any software?

    This is normal behaviour for a full screen game. If the game has a fullscreen borderless mode, you will need to use that to be able to switch apps without minimizing the game.

    Not able to find any games, as-well as not being able to sync any saves.: This is hard to explain. This only seems to happen in games I have played previously - Forza Horizon 3 and Motorsport 7... Not Horizon 4 though.
