How To Turn Off Game Mode in Windows 10


Windows 10 is designed to be your best friend by helping you out with everything from typing and messaging to managing your files. However, some people don’t like that it automatically logs you into Xbox Live (a Microsoft product) and Game Mode (the settings for the processor). If you would like to stop the automatic logging, do the following:

What is Game Mode

Game Mode is a cool feature in Windows 10 that will make your PC run faster while you’re gaming. However, Game Mode can also cause your PC to be more vulnerable to attacks, so if you’re not a gamer and don’t want to risk it, you can disable Game Mode.

Should I disable Windows Game Mode?

Unless you are a gamer, Windows 10 Game Mode should never be turned on.

How to disable Game Mode

1. Click on Start and enter “gpedit.msc” into the search bar.

2. You will see a screen with two options: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Gaming > Game Mode

3. Double-click on Game Mode. You will see a screen with two checkboxes next to it: “Enable Game Mode” and “Enable Hibernate Game Mode.”

4. Check the box next to “Enable Hibernate Game Mode.” This will disable the automatic logging into Xbox Live and Game Mode, but you can still play games in Windows 10 without an internet connection or a computer that is connected to Xbox Live (if you have either of those, you will have to change your settings).

How do I log out of Xbox Live?

* Go to the Start Menu and type in “settings” (without quotes)

* Click on “choose your country or region”

* Scroll down until you see Microsoft Accounts, then click “Sign Out”.

* Open up a different window by clicking on the Cortana search bar. Type in “Xbox live sign-out” (without quotes). This will take you to a page that asks if you want to sign out of Xbox Live. Click Sign Out.
