Step 6: Now you will see all the sections you can customize for game mode on driver Booster:

  • Processes section: These are the running processes active on your system. You can disable the ones that you do not want. Make sure you do not disable any system process for drivers and other important services. You can always read the description provided by the Game Mode.
  • Windows Services: These are windows services. Make sure you read what the service does before disabling. Many of them are necessary services but its always better to check and confirm.
  • Non-Windows Services: This can include a lot of services like antivirus and driver-related services. Find services you do not need for gaming and disable them. Make sure essential services are not disabled.
  • Others: Others section has only 3 options. I recommend selecting all 3 so that you get a good ram and performance boost.

Note: Driver Boosters Game mode only temporarily disables the services while you are gaming. Once you disable the game mode the services are turned back on. So you do not have to worry about any issues in general. You can always disable the game mode. You can also restart your system to disable the game mode.

Step 7: Once you are done selecting the services you want to disable. Click on the boost button to enable gaming mode.

Step 8: If you are having issues because you disabled something you should not have disabled then go back to the process selection screen and click on the recommended settings as shown below:

This will reset all options to default. Now you can retry or use the default gaming mode as per your needs. That is all.

If you need any more help you can use their manual directly which explains each and every setting in depth.
