Game Mode is available to all users of Windows 10. It aims to make Windows 10 the best operating system for gamers, smoothing the gameplay experience across all types of computers and devices. It does not matter whether your PC is the most powerful in terms of hardware or if it is an older, slower PC.

However, we usually avoided doing so, because each time we wanted to skip or play a different song, we had to switch between the game and the media player, using the Alt + Tab keyboard shortcut.

If you are using Windows 10 and you are a gamer, you've probably heard about the Game Mode. This feature helps make gaming smoother, regardless of how fast or slow your PC is.

Also, when you are playing a really old game, Windows 10 might fail to recognize it as a game and might not use the Game Mode for it.

Windows Media Player has been around in Windows for ages, and it still is a capable player for all kinds of media files: music, pictures, and movies. However, you might be a fan of another media player such as VLC or Movies & TV. In that case, you might want to get rid of Windows Media Player, and save some storage space.

Here is how to quickly and reliably rip CDs, in Windows, with Windows Media Player:
HDR means High Dynamic Range, and it is a technology that offers a richer, more colorful viewing experience on your screen. With HDR you see more detail both in the shadows and highlights of a scene. Due to HDR, you get a brighter, more vibrant, and more detailed picture compared to a standard display. HDR is excellent for immersive video experiences, including movies and games. Some people say that HDR improves the viewing experience more than the high 4K or 8K resolutions do. If you have a new PC with Windows 10 that has support for HDR, you can turn on this display technology.
