  2. Wanting to run old games

    Hi Jameson,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 is much appreciated.

    I would suggest you to refer the below link and check the compatibility of the game with Windows 10.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/compatibility/CompatCenter/Home

    You may also try installing the game in compatibility mode.
    Follow these steps to install the game software in compatibility mode and check if that helps.


          • Right-click on the game setup file and click on
            ‘properties’.

          • Click on the ‘compatibility’ tab and check the box
            ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for’ and select Windows 8 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done, restart the computer and check if the issue persists.
    If the issue still persists, I would suggest you to get in touch with the game manufacturer if it’s specific to that particular game.

    Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.

  3. Windows 10 keeps going to desktop while running full screen games

    Every time I try to run a game that goes into full screen, or set a game to go into full screen in the settings, my computer immediately jumps back to the desktop with the game still running in the background. Whenever I try to open the game up again,
    it just minimizes again after a few seconds. Some times it takes longer to minimize the game, allowing me to actually play it for a little while, but its really irritating and I want to know how to fix it. I have a new laptop, I got it a few days ago. It has
    Windows 10. Any help would be really appreciated.

  4. Windows 10 keeps going to desktop when i run a game for 5 seconds

    Windows 10 all my games now run on FPS 5..

    Hi Teresa,



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


    • Are you referring to Windows Store games or Desktop games?

    • Which games are you referring to?

    • What is the make and model of the computer?



      If you are referring to Desktop games, I would suggest you to uninstall and re-install them in compatibility mode and check if it helps.



      Let us know the results. If you are still facing the issue, we’re here to help.
