Games won't launch on Windows 10

I just recently upgraded to windows 10. I tried to play my steam games today. The launching game screen would flicker then vanish without brining up the game. I discovered that the same thing happened when I tried to play an online RPG game. I am not sure quite what to do about this annoying problem as I never had this issue with my windows 7...

Any and all help would be appreciated! If someone knows a fix I will need detailed instructions as I am not the best at updating and fixing stuff.
