What can you do if you are unsure which version of Windows you should specify in the compatibility settings?

You should use the compatibility troubleshooter can be accessed from the compatibility tab or by right-clicking an EXE and clicking “Troubleshoot compatibility.”

You can test the EXE in one of two ways: Trying recommended settings or troubleshooting its behavior.

Click “Try recommended settings” if you are not sure how to configure the settings in the compatibility tab.

This’ll take a few minutes for Windows to find what it thinks is the right settings. Click “Test the program…” to see if these settings work.

Windows will ask what happened. If the settings worked, click “Yes.” If not, click “No, try again…” to have Windows re-calibrate the settings. If you try multiple configurations, click “No, report the problem…” to try and troubleshoot the EXE’s compatibility online.

If you try different settings, Windows will ask a variety of questions to try and figure out what settings need to be changed.
