When Kaspersky Security Cloud runs in full-screen mode together with some other applications (particularly computer games), the following issues may occur:

  • Application or game performance decreases due to lack of system resources
  • Notification windows of Kaspersky Security Cloud distract the user from the gaming process

To avoid changing the settings of Kaspersky Security Cloud manually every time you switch to full-screen mode, you can use Gaming mode. If Gaming mode is being used and you are playing or working with applications in full-screen mode, Kaspersky Security Cloud does not run scan and update tasks and does not display notifications.

To enable Gaming mode:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Settings 2019.png button in the lower part of the window.

    The Settings window opens.

  3. Select the General section.
  4. In the Performance settings block, select the Use Gaming mode check box.

You can also select the Use "Do not Disturb" mode check box. In this mode, you do not see notifications if you're actively working in some applications, also scan and update tasks are not started.
