FAQs - compatibility mode
Here you will find questions and answers to common software topics.
I installed iTunes on my Windows computer. When I try to open my iTunes I get this message: I iTunes.exe has been set to run in compatibility mode for an older version of Windows. For the best results, turn off compatibility mode before you open it. Is there any way you can figure this out?
To turn off a href="/support-categories/windows/358-compatability-mode" target="blank">compatibility mode for iTunes you need to find the executable for the file that runs iTunes (most likely itunes.exe). The easiest way to do this is to right click on your iTunes icon and choose Properties. Then look in the Target section to find the location of the .exe file that runes iTunes. You can click on the Open File Location button to take you right to the folder where the executable is located. Next you would right click the file and choose Properties and go to the Compatibility tab and uncheck the box that says Run this program in compatibility mode for.
