Written by | Categories: Gaming - Computers - Tips & Tricks - Computers - Windows 10

Are you looking for a guide to tweak Windows 10 for gaming on the internet? Then you headed to the right spot.

We’ll explore approaches to configuring the Windows 10 gaming operating system in the following post.

We mentioned the way to optimize the FPS while gaming on Windows 10 in our past guide, but for this one, we’re going to talk about ways to make your Windows 10 run smoother while gaming, but before we can start walking through our guide, there are a couple of things you want to do first.

Make sure you are using the latest version of Windows 10, check Windows Update. Also make sure you backup the Registry before you proceed.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to cut down the high ping on half or more. There are other recommended tricks we explained earlier like speeding up your internet with DNS benchmark, or limiting the speed of internet to other users in the network.

Let’s go!

1. Turn Off Network Throttling Index

Open Run prompt using Windows+R and execute the command regedit.

Follow this path and you will find two DWORD 32-bit Values: NetworkThrottlingIndex & SystemResponsiveness (if you can’t find them, make them)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile

Double-click on NetworkThrottlingIndex and give it the value “ffffffff(8 Fs)

Same for SystemResponsiveness but give it “0” (zero).

2. Disable “Nagling” Algorithm

Now let’s disable nagling, open the Command Prompt.

Execute the command ipconfig to find the IP address of your local network:

Open the Registry Editor again.

Follow this path and select your interface according to the DhcpIPAddress we found earlier using “msconfig.”


Create these DWORD (32-bit) values:

  • TcpAckFrequency > 1
  • TCPNoDelay > 1
  • TcpDelAckTicks > 0
