How to fix low FPS in Windows 10

Gaming experience in windows 10 is much better than the windows 8 and 8.1 . But compared to Windows 7, I can still feel low fps and annoying lag while playing games in windows 10. In windows 10, Microsoft tried to integrate the PC gaming and Xbox gaming which brings a lot of new game playing features. But, most of these new features are not very much useful to a normal gamer. Instead, they hugely impact the game performance and halts the game FPS.

One of these feature is called Game DVR using which you can easily record your gameplay for uploading to YouTube or for any other purpose. The problem with Game DVR feature is that it is enabled by default, and it can have serious impact on game performance even when you are not recording your gameplay, which in turn reduces Game FPS.
