    I think this may have been linked to GAMEDVR, because it only works if the game is in Windowed mode.
    However the latest updates this seem to have fixed the problem ( I was getting the problem with the "sticky start screen" as well where it would not close. That too, seems to have been fixed

    Still having this issue.

    Latest Windows 10 build 10122, with all the Windows update installed. nVidia driver 352.84.

    Full-screen gaming doesn't work, but windowed does.

    More detailed what happening:

    Example, when launching FEZ in full-screen mode I can hear the game running but the screen has frozen. If I Alt-Tab out and back to get game the screen updates it with current picture from game. So everything is running, its just not getting drawn on screen while the game is in focus. I can manage to navigate to option and then choose window mode and everything works.

    Did you do an upgrade to 10122 or a clean install?

    Did a clean install with build 10074 the day before, and then I updated to 10122 with windows update.

    Seeing as how the issue was there in 10074, upgrading to 10122 possibly carried the issue into the new build. If you can, I'd recommend clean installing 10122 and seeing if the issue still persists.

    I've made the jump from build 10049 and had the issue on the 10122. So I dont think it carried the problem in his case.

    Hmm...that's interesting. I'm not having any issues playing games in fullscreen on 10122. Then again, I didn't on 10079 either. I'll look around. If I can find any possible solutions or workarounds, I'll post them.

    Windows 10 behaves very strangely from people to people. In my case best gaming experience is 10049, all other builds had some kind of problem. The worse being of course in 10122 with game crashing full screen.
    So far I've never been able to find a pattern as what causes people (and mine) problems

    Most of the builds are pretty solid gaming for me, although 10122 was pretty bad. My only issue is that I have to use an older Windows 8.1 Nvidia driver or I get hard locks while playing games. Hopefully all this gets sorted out once Windows 10 RTMs.
