    Im having issues with my game bar party overlay. Its "When Pinned" setting it set to minimal but there's this black box behind it that's really irritating me. my game bar did not always have this problem, it used to show the party members transparent while playing games, as intended.

    Pc Game bar overlay problem

    I've tried both repairing/ resetting the app and I have also deleted and reinstalled with the powershell commands.

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.

    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this CurlyVengeance

    Could be a graphical issue, let's try to isolate a bit more the issue.

    May I know if you already tried resetting your game bar?

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for Game Bar app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then reset

    Finally open game bar, re-configure everything if necessary and check how it goes.

    ---------

    If maybe the issue persists please try instead reinstalling it using a powershell command:

    Right-click on the Start button (Or press Windows key + X) and select Windows PowerShell (Admin) from the pop-up menu.

    Copy and paste the following command in PowerShell and hit Enter to uninstall the Game Bar from your system.

    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage

    Restart your PC, open Microsoft store and search for game bar. Install it and give it a new try

    Let me know the resolution, I'll be waiting for your reply

    Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Battery Status on Windows 10

    I have same problem. In [tag:Windows10] game bar overlays default application for battery status (that doesn't work). :-(

    Hi Sephando! My name is Ricardo an independent advisor ready to help you with this situation!

    Seems to be related with apps overlays, you should try disabling all overlays like the game bar, discord, and Nvidia if you use steam or other platforms games that use overlays please disable those also

    If you can share you're PC specs will be great

    [PC] Xbox Game bar push to talk not working in background

    I discovered this exact same issue last night, between State of Decay 2 and the Xbox Game Bar.

    My workaround was to PTT transmit with the game-bar open, then close the bar overlay to return to gameplay - the problem this created was that I was always transmitting, which does not help in your scenario.
