Infos from Microsoft(c):
Compatibility mode
Runs the program using settings from a previous version of Windows. Try this setting if you know the program is designed for (or worked in) a specific previous version of Windows.
  1. Run in reduced color mode
    Uses a limited set of colors in the program. Some older programs are designed to use fewer colors.
  2. Run in 640 × 480 screen resolution
    Runs the program in a smaller-sized window. Try this setting if the graphics for the program appear jagged or are rendered improperly.
  3. Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
    Turns off automatic resizing of programs if large-scale font size is used. Try this setting if large-scale fonts are interfering with the appearance of the program.
  4. Privilege level
    Runs the program as an administrator. Some programs require administrator privileges to run properly. If you aren't signed in to your PC as an administrator, this option is unavailable.
  5. Change settings for all users
    Lets you choose settings that will apply to all users on this computer
Tip:

You can also open the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter by pressing and holding or right-clicking a program's icon or shortcut on your desktop, and then tapping or clicking Troubleshoot compatibility.
