The GeForce Experience app has been quite helpful for players since its release by Nvidia. Features like Auto optimization, ShadowPlay, and such have enabled gamers to not worry about installing third-party apps for things like recording video, capturing screenshots, and such. And with Nvidia’s launch of the 4000 series, it will be exciting to see how the app handles it.
All praise aside, the app itself does have some faults. Sometimes it may not be able to detect games or GPU. And in this case, not opening in the game. While this is not a major issue but it should be fixed. So, is it fixable?? Yes, of course, it is. But how?? Well, for that you need to follow this guide.
GeForce Experience Not Opening in Games: How To Fix It?
Do keep in mind before starting that you should only follow the next method if the previous one doesn’t work. Going overboard will not magically rid the app of all possible future issues.
Update GeForce Experience –
Most times the problem starts in the roots. In this case, the GeForce app. If the software is outdated by any chance, you need to update it asap. To do that, go to the Nvidia official website and download the latest version of the app from there.
Check Game Support –
There are countless games in the market right now, more than ever. And Nvidia even if it wanted to, cannot support all of them. Geforce Experience supports a wide variety of games, but if your game is not listed there, it might be the reason why this issue is occurring.
Disable third-party anti-virus software –
Almost all third-party antivirus software nowadays is bloatware. For most users, Windows Defender is a great tool. These third-party ones tend to block software from running, leading to the app in question not functioning properly or even at all. So, to fix this issue, just disable your antivirus.
Give Admin Privileges –
Another reason why GeForce Experience might not be opening in games may be due to it not having the required access to do so. By giving admin access, you can get rid of that issue. To do so, right-click on the app icon or shortcut and select Properties. Next, go to the Compatibility tab and choose the “Run this program as an administrator” option. Press ok and apply.
Update Windows –
An outdated Windows version can also be the reason why the GeForce experience is not opening in games. If you want to update Windows, open Settings > Update and Security. Click on Windows Security and press the Check for Updates option. Your download will automatically start if an update is available.
