Use Game Mode while gaming on your PC

Game Mode helps ensure that you have the best possible gaming experience while playing games on Windows 10. When you use Game Mode, we make gaming your PC's top priority so you get the best game quality and performance.

To use Game Mode, make sure it's turned on for each game you play. To turn on Game Mode:

  1. Open the Game bar by pressing the Windows logo key + G.
  2. Select Settings in the Game bar.
  3. In the General tab, select the check box for "Game Mode."

Some games may have Game Mode turned on automatically. If the game is already running Game Mode, the check box will already be selected.
