hey all, i was wondering where in windows i can go to see what programs windows has set automatically under compatibility mode. i see theres a service you can turn off to turn it off ( i dont know though if that fixes what it did) but i really don't want to turn it off for the pc, but i want to edit what programs are in that mode. for example the other day i had a random steam freeze ( steam games ) and because of that random freeze, that once in a while happens, on all operating systems, the computer said it put it in compatibility mode, no choice, no option, not even telling me what KIND of compatibility mode, and now steam says to turn if off to aviod conflicts. heres the issue, when you would normally go to turn it on of off, the program properties , or the .exe properties says its off, so where in windows can i go to turn if off, since its supposedly off. i even tryed turning it on, Just to turn it off, and that did not help at all. Any idea's?


and if this makes no sense, heres a link to which service im talking about, im just trying to find out where the settings are kept for this to turn off compatibility mode for steam.
