What to do if the gaming mode does not start with my game?
This topic instructs what to do if the product's gaming mode fails to start on Windows.
By default, the gaming mode is activated when Windows detects that a game is started. Sometimes, however, Windows may fail to recognize a game, and the gaming mode will not activate. If this occurs, you can manually add detection for that particular game in the Xbox Game Bar in the following way:
- Launch the game.
- Press Windows key + G. The Game Bar opens.
- From the Game Bar, select Settings > General and select then the Remember this is a game checkbox.
Note: If you don't see the setting, Game Bar already recognizes the game.
From now on, the product will always activate the gaming mode as soon as you launch the game.
Note: You can use this setting with games bought from any games store.
