How to Add or Remove Troubleshoot Compatibility Context Menu in Windows 10

information   Information
Most apps created for earlier versions of Windows will work in this version of Windows, but some older apps might run poorly or not at all. You can try using compatibility mode or run the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter on most programs to detect and fix common compatibility problems.

When you right click on an application file (ex: .exe), you can click/tap on the Troubleshoot compatibility context menu item to run the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter wizard on the program.

This tutorial will show you how to add or remove the Troubleshoot compatibility context menu for all users in Windows 10.

You must be signed in as an administrator to add or remove the context menu.
