The gaming universe on computers is very different from that on consoles. PC gamers should continually be reviewing their device settings to improve the experience and adapt to gaming requests.

This has both positive and negative things. That’s why, Microsoft gives Windows 10 and 11 users three recommendations to improve their experiencetaking advantage of a series of options available in the operating system and with small changes it is possible to play in a more fluid way.

The first tip is for Windows 11 users, which comes with a security feature called ‘Core Isolation’. This feature, while vital to protecting the system against cyber attacks, can slow down performance in demanding games. One of its components, ‘Memory Integrity’, can be particularly problematic for gamers.

Fortunately, turning off this feature is easy. Just follow a few steps:

  • Click the search bar on the taskbar and type “kernel isolation.”
  • Select the option that appears and turn off the memory integrity switch.

With this setting, your PC will be able to devote more resources to gaming performance, thus providing a more fluid and uninterrupted experience.

Windows Machine Platform (VMP) allows users to run additional operating systems on their PC using virtual machines. Although this feature can be useful in certain contexts, it can have a negative impact on gaming performance, according to Microsoft.

To disable VMP and improve gaming performance, follow these steps:

-
  • In the taskbar search bar, type “Turn Windows features on or off.”
  • Select the option that appears and uncheck the “Virtual Machine Platform” box.

By disabling this feature, your PC will free up resources that would otherwise be reserved for virtual machines, which can translate into better performance in your favorite games.

The paging file, an essential part of the Windows internal storage system, is used as additional memory for critical system processes. Adjusting its size can have a significant impact on overall PC performance, especially during long gaming sessions.

To adjust the paging file size and improve gaming performance, follow these detailed steps:

  • In the taskbar search bar, type “Advanced system” and select “View advanced system settings.”
  • In the window that appears, go to the “Advanced” tab and click “Settings” in the “Performance” area.
  • In the “Performance Options” window, go to the “Advanced” tab and click “Change” in the “Virtual Memory” area.
  • Make sure the “Automatically manage paging file size for all drives” box is checked.

With this setting, your PC will be able to efficiently use the paging file, thus optimizing performance during gaming sessions.

In addition to taking advantage of these Microsoft recommended settings, It is also important to clean up the files that we do not need and that are stored on the computer. The resources that the computer consumes to process them can be used to improve performance when playing.

You should also review the applications that run when you turn on the computer. These processes can slow you down and delay many other processes.

Another key is to keep the operating system, the platform where we play and the video game itself updated. All of this will allow us to correct performance and security problems that may affect the experience.
