    Xbox Game Bar Version: 5.721.9022.0

    Broadcast Plugin Version: 1.54.4001.0

    KGL Version Loaded: 2090

    KGL Service Version: 2090

    KGL Last Check: 2021-10-19T01:39:53

    OneSettings Last Check: 2021-10-19T01:39:53

    KGL Location Encrypted: No

    (p.s. - my system had official support for upgrade to Windows 11. It's not "unsupported".)

    Problem

    While playing any game, when I press windows + G on the keyboard or the big X button on xbox controller, the xbox game bar overlay pops up; but all the capture options are disabled in it. I can't capture a screenshot or record a video from it. Pressing the shortcut keys (win + alt + r OR win + alt + g) also doesn't work. This used to work fine in Windows 10.

    2. Reset and repaired xbox game bar from windows settings > apps.
    3. Uninstalled xbox game bar and xbox app via PowerShell admin window and reinstalled them.

    I'm trying to take ss and record clips but it dosen't get saved anywhere, i looked into my capture folder and its empty

    Do I take it this is the path where you are looking:

    "To find your game clips and screenshots, select the Start button, then go to Settings > Gaming > Captures and select Open folder."

    Try opening Game Bar (Win+G) and then click on the Capture icon (the little camera picture)...does it show anything if you click on "show all captures"

    How are you recording video/taking screenshots? Are you using Game Bar or something else?

    Use webcam on game capture?

    Hey there jmonk,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the Forums. When you capture game clips on your Xbox One it starts to record automatically on screen. There would be no way to utilize a webcam to capture game clips.

    Go ahead and take a look at the following support article for helpful information on

    Recording and capturing Xbox One game clips and screenshots
    .

    I hope this helps.

    Xbox Game Bar - windows 10

    Hi there Mat,

    Thanks for reaching out here in Xbox Forums. I understand there is an inquiry on the Xbox Game Bar on Windows 10. The game bar will only capture game clips and screenshots. For more information on the Xbox Game Bar, I recommend to check out the following
    article:
    Use Xbox Game Bar to capture game clips and screenshots on Windows 10
    .

    Hope this helps.

    Xbox Game Bar to record

    If you're referring to the Xbox Game Bar on PC, it saves to your hard drive as default. If you go to the Settings app on your PC, click on 'Gaming', and then on the side bar, click on 'Captures'. That will show you where the Xbox Game Bar recordings and
    screenshots are stored.
