  • Hi,

     

    The compatibility tab is displayed in the Properties of a program icon or program file, it isn’t available for files (.doc, .txt, .jpg. etc). Is the compatibility tab missing on all program icons? Please right click other program icons for tests.

     

    As a work around, please click Start, click Control Panel, click Programs, then click “Run programs made for previous versions of Windows” , then select the application that you want to start in compatibility mode.

     

    To solid troubleshoot this kind of issue, please perform a System Restore or In-place Upgrade.

     

    Best Regards

    Dale

  • I'm right clicking a program (Outlook.exe) in Windows 10 - no compatibility pane there.

    I wonder why Microsoft is so persistent in making sure the default user experience is so trouble-filled....
