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.

Hey adblock user! Would you mind whitelisting us? We don't run pre-roll or even post-roll adverts on our videos and it would really help us cover our costs. Without advertising revenue we couldn't bring you any content and we really don't feel our ads spoil the site at all. Thank you!

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