    PC Xbox Game bar party chat makes keyboard and mouse stop working


    Hi, I'm having a weird problem with party chat on PC. Whenever I try to start a party in the Xbox game bar or join a party, my keyboard and mouse just stop working. It looks like the keyboard actually disconnects, as the LED lighting just turns off. I don't have a clue what's causing it as it only happens with party chat. Does anyone know any solutions?

    :)

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    Maybe some program or service is causing this type of problem. Disable as many third-party programs as you are using on your PC and perform a clean boot.

    Also, look for Game Bar in Windows bar>right click>app settings and click ''terminate, repair and restore'', restart your PC, and test if the problem persists.

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

    I am having the same issue, this used to work but now I cannot use push to talk in Sea of Thieves unless I toggle the game bar open when in an Xbox Party audio chat.

    I also cannot set mouse buttons as push to talk hotkeys in the Xbox Game Bar settings, only keyboard keys.

    Mic does not work in party while using a controller on pc

    Thats what I'm doing.. the only thing I am doing different from playing keyboard/mouse is the controller itself. but when i plug it in every setting on the pc changes to controller mic. Even though the controller has no mic. So I go back through all the
    pc settings and xbox companion settings and change it back but the xbox game bar will not let me use the usb mic anymore. I have to unplug the controller and reset the pc to be able to use my mic again. when I start a party in the companion app it says my
    mic is working , but if i am in a party on that app for some reason I'm not in a party on the game bar... so if i start a party on the game bar the mic still doesn't work..

    Streaming Windows 10 games onto Xbox One Discussion

    Yes but let's be honest, some games will never move over to xbox one. The image I am trying to paint is for example being able to stream Anno 2205 or a speciality RTS game such as starcraft 2, stream it to the xbox and actually have the use of mouse and
    keyboard to play said pc game.

    Apparently though mouse support is still in the works but keyboard is already here. They are looking to make mouse and keyboard work for gaming though apparently.

    Rainbow six pc and xbox

    Yea it would be easier just getting it for PC if you wanted to play with mouse and keyboard. I dont believe R6S has keyboard and mouse support on xbox. But with that being said if you really wanted to play with keyboard and mouse on console you could buy
    one of those 3rd party adapters that allows you to play with keyboard and mouse on console.
