    • Open Nvidia GeForce Experience and click the Settings icon
    • Select the General tab
    • For In-Game Overlay, change it to On
    • Go to Settings and click on HUD Layout
    • Select Performance, select FPS, and choose where you’d like the overlay to display
    • Click Done and close the program
  • For AMD Users:
    • Open AMD Adrenalin and select the Performance tab
    • For Show Metrics Overlay, toggle to Enabled

Upon launching Hogwarts Legacy again, you should see your FPS counter overlay at the location you chose.
