    Issue: Afterburner/Rivatuner OSD appears in Photos App


    Since a recent update to Windows own Photos App, the On-Screen Display from Afterburner/Rivatuner (updated to latest versions) appears in the application window.

    I've had this minor annoyance with desktop applications such as MPC and Blender but its very easy to fix by creating a profile for the offending exe. With "Photos" being a UWP app this isnt possible. Anyone know a workaround? I keep afterburner running in the background because I dip in and out of games and to keep an eye on temps.

    Have you tried to add the Photo App's product name to the ignore list on Afterburner, similar to how you do with the exe.

    Have you tried turning OSD off when not needed or not using Afterburner when doing desktop work?

    Adding the product name didn't work unfortunately. I have an on-off toggle key for the OSD but it does not work in Photos either.

    I have a tutorial on how to add exclusions here(with help for the developer of Afterburner, Unwinder): Add a UWP exclusion to MSI Afterburner's OSD - Windows 10 Forums

    Oh, and if you get the latest version, all the default Windows non-game apps should already be excluded: Latest MSI Afterburner Betas Updates - Windows 10 Forums

    Or you can also download these profiles I have, unzip them and copy to C:\Program Files (x86)\RivaTuner Statistics Server and replace the folders you have in there.
