Windows 10 Game Mode Will Boost Gaming Experience, Says Microsoft

18 January, 2017, 01:20 | Author: Elaine Woods

Microsoft seems committed to providing an environment suited for hardcore gamers, and the Windows 10 Creator's update will deliver a high-performance gaming mode allowing users to maximize the performance of their PC. The key word in the Ybarra quote above is "optimize" - it looks like all Game Mode is going to do is tailor the background processes running on your PC to make it work smarter when you're using Microsoft's Game DVR feature. This had the whole gaming community anxious that Microsoft isn't paying enough attention towards them, but this was cleared when Microsoft shook everyone when it announced a new Windows 10 mode.

It's no secret that Microsoft wants customers to update to Windows 10, the latest version of the company's operating system.

Windows is reportedly working on a Game Mode for Windows 10. "Whether you play on Xbox One, a Windows 10 PC, your mobile phone, or anywhere you sign-in with Xbox Live, we're going to make your gaming experiences easier, more social, and better with innovative hardware and software features throughout the year". "As early as in Windows XP, we saw that companies should take early steps to avoid future risks or costs".

Dairy Queen Location Shut Down After Racist Rant
Crichton also told the officer he was "fed up with black people" and continued to freely use the slur in the conversation. The owner of a Dairy Queen in IL has lost his franchise agreement after comments he reportedly made to a customer.

Before the Microsoft announcement, Twitter user @h0x0d reportedly found the new feature in the Windows 10 developer build in December. This week, the company began targeting enterprise users, urging them to upgrade from Windows 7 as the ageing OS is no longer fit for goal in the work place as it "can no longer keep up with increased security requirements".

If and when Microsoft does add ebook support to the Windows Store, the company will gain one more potential way to monetize Windows. Chipset features such as power management and modern I/O standards like USB 3 and Thunderbolt can also prove problematic to those using older OSes.

Microsoft is also reportedly set to update its blue screen of death with a new "green screen of death", which will help users detect and solve issues with their device more easily. With the Creators Update, we're introducing a new feature called Game Mode. Microsoft has revealed that with one press of the home button it will pull up the enhanced Guide as an overlay. Most major changes are directed towards Xbox One's Guide. Windows Insiders can access this feature by launching Game DVR Settings General Game Mode.
