Just hold Xbox guide button for 5+ seconds.

Apparently, you can open the game bar, and then one of the settings inside the game bar is "Stop pestering me with pointless stuff". If you don't want the Game Bar, gotta go in the Game Bar.

Unfortunately, there's no current (legal) way to disable the Adobe Flash killswitch, and I would obviously not recommend trying to illegally "crack" copyrighted games unless you want angry lawyers coming your way. (It would also require a great deal of programming experience.) The Flash shutdown really, really sucks for older Flash games, including ...

1) Open the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc) 2) Select "Windows Explorer" 3) Click the "Restart" button in the bottom right corner of the task manager windows

Disclaimer: This suggestion is dangerous and can leave you vulnerable to security exploits. You can download an old version of Firefox which does not have the Flash killswitch from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ You can download an old Flash version which does not have the killswitch from https://adobe_flash_player.en.downloadastro.com/...

Honestly, Windows Update shouldn't lag your game, unless your internet connection is slow. I have a 256kB/s connection, and it doesn't seem to have any effect while playing games online. If at all, Windows Update tries not to affect the speed of your any other connections to the internet while it's updating. If you're really worried about Windows Update ...

I had the same problem with Skyrim. You can't fully avoid it, but you can go to your Task Manager -> Options -> Always on Top. It will now always be above the Crashed game so you can close it. You can then safely restart it.

Although you may not be able to, it's possible the websites themselves will be able to, using the Rust language project called Ruffle, a Flash Emulator. You described it as a local-emulator, but that's not all it is. Ruffle is a Flash Player emulator written in Rust. Ruffle runs natively on all modern operating systems as a standalone application, and on ...

Full disclosure: I work at Microsoft, though not on the GameDVR team. Yes and no: recording works but the UI isn't visible. Games can run in three graphics modes which are relevant to GameDVR: windowed, exclusive fullscreen, and non-exclusive fullscreen (also called borderless window). GameDVR will work in all three modes, but it can only draw its overlay ...

I use a PS4 controller on my Windows 10 PC which is working fine. However I was at the same point as you. The solution to my problem was working over Bluetooth. I use the Asus USB-BT400 stick to connect with the controller. When you connect your DualShock 4 controller to a PlayStation 4 via a USB cable, the controller automatically pairs with the ...

Solution: Uncheck "Xbox Configuration Support" in the Controller Config menu in Steam. Recently Steam announced Controller Config support, similar to the Steam Controller profiles, for Xbox controllers. When this announcement happened, I started playing around with the settings. I set this: I forgot about it. But that was the problem. I just disabled ...

Roblox has stated on their blog that on PC you will need to copy and paste emojis into the chat. What I recommend doing is placing the emoji somewhere (or googling for it) then copy and pasting into the game.

Windows Update uses BITS (Background Internet Transfer Service). This service is designed with several goals in mind, one of which is minimizing impact to other network applications. Background transfers are optimal in that BITS uses idle network bandwidth to transfer the files and will increase or decrease the rate at which files are transferred based ...

I did some digging and it turns out you ran into the same problem that is described in this question. The solution is quite simple: The game doesn't support Unicode and thus you have to change the language used for programs that don't support it manually in Windows. By default it is set to the OS language. To change it in Windows 10, do the following: ...

The issue is that you're using a 21:9 monitor, and Fallout 4 doesn't support that. You'll need to use the mod TruBy9 Ultrawide to allow it to work with this monitor aspect ratio, and manually set the isize W and isize H in (default location)Documents/My Games/Fallout 4/falloutprefs.ini to 3440x1440. Then keep in mind that any time you change your graphics ...

Changing your locale works, but that will make a lot of other things difficult to do, and essentially makes Windows tell your entire computer that it's Japanese. An alternate solution would be to get Locale Emulator or the like. Then, you run the game under this program, and it simulates the locale change.

Unless you only made this typo when typing the question, the problem is that you have a typo in the folder path. Make sure that the symbols are entered correctly. Correct path: %APPDATA%\.minecraft Common typos: %APPDATA&\.minecraft %APPDATA%.minecraft

Start in windowed mode, drag to correct monitor. Hit alt+Enter for fullscreen, quit and restart with windowed mode uncheck and thats it fixed

I did some googling for you, and you can't turn it off, so I did more googling and found this video that someone made that shows how to remove motors. You'll need a Torques T8 w/ security bit screwdriver. Flip the controller over and remove battery pack and place it to the side. Remove 6 outer screws, and then remove the ...

I tried the other solutions but none of them solved the problem for me. However I think I found the culprit. Do you use Steam? Because if I have Steam turned on I cannot turn the controller back on after it was turned off once. If I exit Steam and try to sync again, the controllers stay on. I've tried this more than once and it works. After that I just ...

It's easier than in the self-answer. In the launcher, you can click on "Installations", then on the profile you want (default is "Latest release") and then set a resolution in there.

What I didn't know, however, is that apparently Adobe will flip a killswitch and disable Flash entirely, regardless of your browser version. This will most likely work, as long as the browser version is old enough not to have the killswitch-enabled version of the Flash plugin, so anything prior to ~2018 should work. We won't know for sure until the EOL date ...

You can find old versions of Firefox bundled with old versions of Flash Player. Firefox is open source and this kind of redistribution is completely legal. As for Flash, this might be illegal or it might be gray area (illegal but tolerated) as happens with most abandonware, or even legal (fair use for research?). Laws are different in different jurisdictions ...

This is because the map must be created through the Windows 10 Edition game, where there someone can export their world. Since the feature is so new, map-makers likely just haven't exported and uploaded them yet. To import them, just click on the import button and navigate to the .mcworld file. The .zip files (and what is within) you are finding are for ...

There are two versions of Minecraft that Windows 10 can run - the standard desktop version, and the Windows 10 Beta version. You can download both on minecraft.net's download page. The standard desktop version is the one you'd want to install, and runs exactly the same between Windows 7 and Windows 10. The Windows 10 Beta features cross-platform play with ...

As long as you don't have PowerShell active and running while you're playing, you're fine and the issue is somewhere else. PowerShell is basically a fancy CMD and COULD be used to tamper with the game and inject stuff (hacks). I'm going to go ahead and assume you didn't have PowerShell running while playing, because you'd have to be the one starting ...

Based on what you've described, I think this post has a solution. Using a wired/wireless controller connected to the GFE PC instead of the streaming device Normally, Moonlight sends controller input from the streaming client which gets sent to the game by GFE. If you want to connect a controller to your PC instead of the streaming device, GFE can cause some ...

Just from some light research around Google, this seems to be impossible to do, at least for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The 360 likely has a proprietary format that it saves in for that console, which is different than how the game would save on a PC. This post on the Steam forums references the Xbox One version, which would likely be more in line with how a ...

Turning off XBoxStat.exe should work.

You mentioned you updated the drivers, but DS4 has no official driver on Windows 10 so I assume you are using an unofficial driver like DS4Windows. There was a change to Windows that broke DS4Windows and effectively renders the DS4 device unusable until the user manually re-enables it. To work around this issue, you'll need to re-enable the DS4 and use a ...
