Here are the latest improvements to Windows 10 for PC gamers in the recent
October Windows Update:
Game bar Improvements
- New look: Enjoy a cleaner new look and
- New audio controls: With the new audio
control panel, get more control out of individual audio channels without
ever having to leave your game.
- Game bar is now an app: Launching Game bar
is now easier than ever, whether through the desktop, apps, the Start menu,
or task bar.
Game Mode Improvements
- Fewer gaming interruptions: Based on
feedback from gamers, we’ve simplified the way Game Mode works. Now
auto-enabled for all games with a master On/Off toggle in Windows Settings,
Game Mode suppresses Windows Update driver installs and blocks Windows
Update interruptions such as restart notifications while you’re gaming. You
may also see improved game performance with less FPS variability depending
on the specific game and system.
