    Screen tearing on games after Windows Fall Creator's Update

    Hi. I realised that after I updated to Windows 10 Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.19), I received screen tearing when I played on games like Garry's Mod. This had not happened before the update, and I now have to turn V-Sync on to play games. I updated my graphics driver with no resolve. I read about turning off the integrated game DVR and game bar, but I am not sure if I have done it correctly or if it has helped me at all, as I still receive game tearing. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    I would install the latest GPU driver, ideally one which claims support for the FCU.

    I have already installed the latest graphics driver for Intel HD Graphics 4600, link:
    Download IntelĀ® Graphics Driver for Windows* [15.40]

    ,but this has not had any effect.

    Screen tearing is due to more than one frame displaying at the time, which is why V-sync works.
    It means your graphics iGPU is rendering more than say 60 fps(Monitor refresh rate). In other words it's too fast.

    So increase the Graphics effects in the game to slow down the fps.

    Turning on the Game DVR should have a small slowing effect as well.

    It's a recent graphics driver, that won't be the problem.

    I know this may sound counter intuitive but it means it's working better than before with increased fps in the games.
