Right-click on the Desktop shortcut icon (or the executable file if there is not shortcut icon on the Desktop) and then choose Properties>Compatibility tab. Click in the checkbox beside "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and then use the drop-down picklist to choose the operating system. You can also click in the checkboxes beside whichever items in Display settings might be more appropriate for the game. Click on Apply then OK.
