    Unable to play games after upgrading to windows 10


    Hello Microsoft,

    I am Vian Khan. I am unable to play the games after i have upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7. Windows 7 was best in gaming i have ever experienced but after i got windows 10 games just not work. I tried to uninstall and then again install the game again but the problem doesn't get solved. I think so Windows 10 is not good at all for gaming after wasting so much of data in the games it feels really bad that you cannot play the game that we wanted to play. You must have made an popup to every windows 10 upgrader that the "Windows 10 is not suitable for gaming please upgrade on your risk for gaming" then we would not waste our data on the things that we can't do. I have even checked on microsoft website about the problems solutions and also tried them but still it isn't working .I have been really feeling bad about this thing. Please look into this problem kindly.


    Thank You

    :)
