How to Run an App in Compatibility Mode

Alternatively, you can go into a app’s properties to change its compatibility mode settings. With compatibility mode, you can force an app to use settings from an earlier version of Windows — helpful if you know the app ran well in, say, Windows 7 or Vista. You can also change the display and color settings for the app.

1. Right-click on an app and select Properties. You can do this from the app’s shortcut or by navigating in File Browser to the EXE file.

2. Select the Compatibility tab, then check the box next to “Run this program in compatibility mode for:”

3. Select the version of Windows to use for your app’s settings in the dropdown box.

4. Hit Apply, then run your app and see if this fixed your issues.
