Here how is how to enable or disable game mode in Windows 10:

2. From the Windows Settings screen that appears, select the Gaming option.

3. From the Gaming Settings screen, on the left side, click on Game Mode.

4. Under Game Mode settings, there will be a slider to enable or disable Game Mode. Simply click on the slider and the setting will change between On and Off. There are no additional settings that would need to be changed for these settings to take place, any changes are done automatically by Windows.
