However, there are situations when Windows 10 can’t deliver the best gaming experience due to various issues. Sometimes, Microsoft pushes cumulative updates to address these issues, other times gamers are left on their own. The latest Windows 10 cumulative update, KB3194496, fixes install issues on ReCore, Forza Horizon 3, and Halo 5: Forge.
Unfortunately, this update doesn’t fix the low FPS issue reported by Counter Strike players. More specifically, tens of thousands of CS gamers have experienced low FPS and floating mouse issues after upgrading to Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
Fortunately, there’s a quick workaround you can use to fix these issues and enjoy a seamless gaming experience.
As a safe solution for FPS issues, lags and slowdowns while playing, we recommend you to download Game Fire (free) . It will focus your computer resources and processes on the game without overclocking your hardware.
