Are you tired of having FPS issues in League of Legends? If so, you have come to the right place.

League of Legends, for the most part, is a remarkably optimized game as an Esports title game is designed with every kind of hardware in mind. Almost any hardware can run the game at a stable 60 FPS, from high-end gaming machines to low-end PCs. Even toaster PCs can run the game pretty flawlessly.

That said, optimized as it may be, that game sometimes has FPS issues. Some users have reported that they were having FPS issues. Their FPS would randomly drop down below 60 or even have fewer frames than desired. Players tried turning off Vsync, using Borderless Fullscreen, or even toning down the graphics settings. Sadly, none of it has fixed the problem.

But recently, a Reddit user named Lntc26 shared a fix for the bad FPS issues. According to the user, Full Screen Optimization is the cause of the problem. So, disabling should solve the problem.

In this article, we will go over Full Screen Optimization and show you how to disable it.

Disabling Full-Screen Optimization

Full-Screen Optimization is a feature introduced in Windows 10 that lets the application optimize the entire screen of your PC, thus leading to better performance. The feature helps many games run smoothly and is on by default on Windows. But, in the case of League of Legends, it leads to some FPS issues. So, disabling the feature is a good idea. Now let’s get to the part where we show you how to disable it.

Use these simple steps to disable Full-Screen Optimization,

  • Click the Start button.
  • Open up settings by clicking the Setting icon.
  • Click the “Gaming” option to open a window called the ” Game Bar.”
  • Uncheck the “Show game bar when I play full screen games Microsoft has verified.” option.
  • Close the window.

It’s simple as that; now you have disabled the Full-Screen Optimization option.

But do keeping mind that this will disable Full-Screen Optimization on all applications, which will affect some other applications.

So, If you want Full-Screen Optimization for other applications, you can disable it for League only. Here’s how,

  • Right-click on the League of Legends icon and click on Properties.
  • Click on the Compatibility tab.
  • Check “Disable Full Screen Optimizations”
  • Click OK and close the window.
  • Go to where your League folder is located; it’s typically C:\Riot Games\League of Legends\Game.
  • Right-click League of Legends.exe and click on Properties.
  • Click on the Compatibility tab.
  • Check “Disable Full Screen Optimizations” and press OK.

This should only turn off Full Screen Optimizations for only League of Legends.
