    Windows 10 Froze up, what can I do if it happens again?


    I was playing an online game, and Windows 10 screen completely froze. All I could to in the end was switch it off at the wall

    If Windows 10 screen completely freezes again, what can I do? Any key combination I can use to try to fix it and close down the game program?

    Ctrl+Alt+Delete.....If you can open Task Manager you could shut down the game in Processes.
    If neither of these work cut the power supply.

    Tried Ctrl+Alt+Delete, didn't work.

    So only way is to turn PC OFF at wall? Does that damage my PC's components in any way?

    I wouldn't think so, but what other choice is there in the circumstances.

    You can always run CHKDSK as a precaution.

    your files could get corrupted turning your computer off like that. If you haven't done it yet you should backup your system to a external drive. If you need a program to do this I recommend the free version of Macrium Reflect. Macrium Reflect Free
