  6. Uninstall add-on managers to make sure they’re not causing any unwanted game interference
  7. Delete specific files in the Virtual Store directory
    1. Set Windows to show hidden files and folders

Speaking of WoW’s UI, many players choose to customize their interface, highlighting the elements that are useful to them. Blizzard’s UI offers limited features and the overall design leaves a little to be desired. As a result, gamers prefer to use different user interfaces that support more functions.

ElvUI is one of the most popular WoW UIs among gamers, is highly customisable, allowing users to turn off any feature they don’t want and use a separate addon.
