If your Cyberpunk 2077 game keeps crashing, it's probably due to huge workload that is running behind the scene. Yup - I'm talking about the tasks of your software like Google Chrome or Adobe that are still running in the background even though you're not using them.

Now open your task manager, and then from all the list of tasks that are running, find the tasks that you don't really need like Google Chrome task or Adobe task, and then turn them off or kill them. This will ensure that Cyberpunk 2077 can get much bigger space to run on your PC.

2. Go to Properties of Cyberpunk 2077

The good thing is, this process doesn't require you to download any cracked file into your game folder. Anyway, in Properties, there are 3 tabs that you can select here. Now choose "Compatibility".

As you can see on the screen, in Compatibility section, there is a few boxes that you can check or uncheck here. Now tick the box that says "Disable fullscreen Optimizations".

Also, make sure that you the boxes that say "run this program as an administrator" and "run this program in compatibility mode for" are NOT selected. So you need to uncheck these boxes if they have been checked in the beginning.

3. Press OK

4. Update your GPU driver

the next thing that is also important is you need to make sure that your NVIDIA or gpu driver has been updated to the latest version. You can do this in Control Panel.

5. Open Firewall & Network Protection

Okay, you're almost done here. This is the very last step. Now open your Windows 10 search box and then type "Firewall". After that, select "Firewall & Network Protection". This controls the network protection of your PC.

On the Firewall window, choose "Allow an app through Firewall". As you can see, you will see the list of software and games that you have installed on your PC. Now find "Cyberpunk 2077" in the list, and then on top right, click the button "Change Setting".
