Gaming Turn On or Off Optimizations for Windowed Games in Windows 11


  • Staff
Graphics_banner.png

Starting with Windows 11 build 22557, Microsoft introduced a feature called Optimizations for windowed games and is designed to significantly improve latency and unlock other exciting gaming features including Auto HDR and Variable Refresh Rate (VRR). Latency improvements can benefit all gamers – from improving your input lag to creating a competitive edge in your gaming experience.

The "Optimizations for windowed games" setting affects presentation modes used in Windowed and Borderless Windowed DX10/DX11 games. Presentation is the method for getting your game’s rendered frames on your display in the most optimal way.

This new optimization specifically applies to Windowed and Borderless-Windowed games because when you’re running in Fullscreen, a similar optimization already exists, and this new setting brings a consistent experience no matter which mode you are running in.

Hi @Brink
I'd like to mention the following two things for this tutorial
1. The default option for this 'Optimizations for windowed' is =OFF, not On as you mentioned under Option 2 Step 2
&
2. The actual/precise REG key is only this
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\UserGpuPreferences]
"DirectXUserGlobalSettings"="SwapEffectUpgradeEnable=1;"

No need for this one,
Code:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\GraphicsSettings]

"SwapEffectUpgradeCache"=dword:00000001

in fact, the path, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\GraphicsSettings doesn't exist in Win 11 22621.105 build

Hello @SM03, :)

The HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\GraphicsSettings key doesn't get added until after the Optimizations for windowed games setting is toggled at least once.

Some of my systems have Optimizations for windowed games turned on by default while others do not, so who knows.

Hi @Brink
I shared the screenshot after turning that option on,
& as you can see in that screenshot, The HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\GraphicsSettings key still didn't add in the REG.

Odd. It was added for me. Just to note, did you refresh regedit for any changes after toggling the setting?

I closed the REGistry & re-run it to check, let me take a reboot now just to double check.

On another note, maybe you've checked this on build 22577, have you checked it in the latest 22621.105 build?

I'm currently running build 25140, but it was the same in build 22557.

EDIT:
I just checked on a 22621 VM, and it has both keys as well after toggling the setting off/on/off.

And I just rebooted, & rechecked the REG, here's the SS, nothing changed, & this is on a real H/W, not any VM

Not sure why you're not seeing it.

This is what Process Monitor is showing when togging Optimizations for windowed games off on my desktop and VMs.

On another note, maybe you've checked this on build 22577, have you checked it in the latest 22621.105 build?
I have this key present. It is probably added once a compatible game is added. Either way the key is re-created once removed.

Don't know why that key ain't present in my system, but evidently, that option is working even without that reg key present.
