How to enable the frame rate counter in Forza Horizon 3 for Windows 10

Monitoring frame rate in Windows Store games mostly requires support for the feature being built in directly. Whether it's for bragging rights or keeping one eye on stability, folks like looking at how well their system is performing.

Fortunately for Forza Horizon 3 fans you can do just this. Here's how to enable it.

  1. Pause the game.
