Compatibility Mode tutorial

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and even Windows 10 will work with lots of software that was designed for Windows XP and even some software that was written for Windows 98 or earlier versions of Windows. However, sometimes older software may be difficult to install or run on modern versions of Windows. If you are having difficulty trying to run old games or software on your modern PC, the first thing to try is changing the compatibility mode options. This video will show you how to do that.

The “Disable Desktop Composition” option is not available in Windows 8 or Windows 10.
