Solve Deskperf.dll Error Messages

Microsoft’s Windows Operating System basically relies on the deskperf.dll file when it comes to the initial resolving of graphics hardware-related issues. In case there are noticeable display problems in the monitor (especially for applications that deal with heavy graphics or videos such as games, photos or movies) an initial solution is to go to the Troubleshoot tab found in the window that would pop-up after clicking the Advanced tab under Settings in the Display Properties pane. Then the work of the deskperf.dll file will become evident.

The main task of the deskperf.dll module is to show the Display Troubleshooter window after ticking the aforementioned Troubleshoot tab. This window contains the Hardware Acceleration panel, which allows the user to manually control the performance of the graphics hardware installed in the computer and to enable write combining, or putting all the data in a temporary buffer to be released later.

The Hardware Acceleration slider features six settings that range from level 0 (indicating that all graphics accelerations are enabled) to level 5 (which means that all accelerations are turned off). Here the user can experiment on the graphics hardware acceleration setting that would bring about the optimal video performance.

The deskperf.dll file is also responsible for displaying the Compatibility Warning window wherein the deskperf.dll file displays options for the user to 1) restart the computer at once in view of the new hardware acceleration setting, or 2) to apply the changes made in the display settings even without restarting. However the deskperf.dll module will remind the user that the changes made in the display settings may cause certain programs to function improperly if the computer will not be restarted immediately.

Described as “advanced display performance properties” the process deskperf.dll is a basic part of the operating system and is essential for accessing or viewing inside the Display Troubleshooter window. Thus the deskperf.dll module must always be present in the Windows system32 folder which contains other vital DLLs.

What is a DLL?

Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.

When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.

Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
