If you’re facing these difficulties, perhaps our tips will help you get more enjoyment out of your Windows 11 PC gaming experience.

Turn on game mode

Activating Game Mode significantly improves performance. It allocates more system resources to gaming applications, disables notifications, and reduces background processes, improving game performance.

To activate, go to Settings via the Windows system tray icon, then select Games > Game Mode and turn the switch on.

Use automatic HDR

High dynamic range (HDR) gives games better brightness and color depth. Turn on automatic HDR in Settings > System Preferences > Display.

Select the display you want and turn on “Use HDR” and “Auto HDR”.

Make sure the game load is on the main GPU

For demanding games, it is recommended to use the most powerful GPU. From the Game Mode menu, select Graphics and set your preferred GPU.

Disable enhanced pointer precision

Disable this feature as it may interfere with effective pointer movement in games. In Mouse Settings, select Advanced Mouse Settings and uncheck Enhanced Pointer Precision.

Update your GPU drivers

Update your drivers regularly to ensure maximum graphics card performance.

Update Windows

Regular Windows 11 updates can also improve performance and overall user experience. Check back regularly for updates.

The tips provided in this article will surely improve your gaming performance.

For best results, also consider other factors such as older graphics cards, slow or overloaded hard drives, problems with certain drivers, overheating, and outdated processors. This will help you use your gaming sessions effectively.
