    Data in a recent leak suggests that Microsoft will be introducing a new 'gaming mode' to Windows 10 which minimises other resources and therefore allows the game to run better and faster. Windows Central reports:

    Are they expecting some sort of congratulations for enabling this in the future or something. In my eyes their Apps and other garbage running in the background should be readily disabled at EUL anyway.

    If Microsoft just paid heed to one word 'choice' they sure would make a lot of friends.

    Foremost amongst choices would be the ability to uninstall Cortana or at least turn it off. Ditto 'Edge'.

    If they did go ahead and introduce a 'game' mode it may be tantamount to them admitting there's a lot of crap going on in the background to Win 10 that needn't be.

    But I suspect most of us knew that already.

    Even, nice link, but that means messing with registry hacks if not using Pro or Enterprise, plus, it only disables Cortana.

    I did follow instructions on the Pro side, but it would be nice if "we" could just please ourselves if we want all this crap or not.

    I spend more time "fixing" my system from MS's interference than I do from protecting it from the internet.

    I dunno about anyone else, but I'll be running 'Gaming Mode' from boot up. :lol:
