Use Game Mode while gaming on your PC

When you use Game Mode, Windows prioritizes your PC's resources so you get the best possible game performance.

Make sure to turn Game Mode on for each game you play. To turn Game Mode on:

  1. Launch a game.
  2. Open Game bar by pressing Windows logo key + G.
  3. Select Turn Game Mode on.

Some games may have Game Mode turned on automatically. In that case, the Game Mode button will appear as on.
