Oh yes you can…maybe!
Click START an right above in the new search box start typing:
until you see “Run programs made for previous versions of Windows”
Press Enter/Return button on your keyboard.
Tip: Right-click to get the wizard: Right-click a program’s icon, or shortcut icon, or even its name in the START menu; from the shortcut menu, choose “Troubleshoot compatibility.”
Answer the questions. You will come to a screen giving you a choice of auto or manual modes:
- try recommended settings (means let Windows do its thing)
- troubleshoot program (means find out what is wrong yourself)
Work through the question screens. When it is over you get a “Start the program” button to test if the program will run.
If this doesn’t work, return to the troubleshooting wizard and click “Next” for a new round of troubleshooting tests.
Good luck out there…
