    Windows 10 xbox app: turn off suggested friends. See attached


    Every week or so I have to minus "-" 10-20 Suggested Friends under my Friends & Clubs tab of the app.

    All are "Hip Clip Creator" or something having to do with your new streaming service.

    I don't want to see this anymore. There doesn't seem to be a way to hide/turn off suggested friends except clicking the minus sign on each and every one.

    Is there a way to disable this "feature" i'm missing?

    Plus i'm getting "Suggested for you" people in the activity feed.

    Maybe i'm old and not "hip", but i don't want to see 10 teens posing in bikinis or dudes with blue hair every time I log on to see if Carl is playing sea of thieves... Screen Shot attached...

    Thanks both of you for the response! Sorry I thought I was posting in some sort of official Microsoft forum, not that peer help isn't any more helpful than full tech support. Most solutions (very creative solutions) have been from non-employee help.

    It's not really a complaint. I know MS is really pushing their social platform Mixer and with that you're going to get users who are selling their "image" rather than their talent, and i see that in my Suggested Friends tab. And good for MS for steaming,
    I hope someday they'll give youtube a run for their money since most of YT's creators are ready to jump ship.

    If it were more "add this streamer as a friend because they had 3,000 viewers speed running dark souls" and not "I'm a teen in a bikini and I make clips" I wouldn't mind as much. Maybe the system is
    just showing top upward friend trend counts, like this person is a gaming god, or more likely it's because she's showing her knockers on the profile picture.

    I know sex sells. But there are already platforms you can find that **** at. Here, you apparently can't turn it off

    Hi delmar93,

    sorry to hear that you are not a ;-) "satisfied customer".

    No, joke aside this is a help forum and unfortunately we (usually users as you are) can't help here. There was a website for proposals but it is offline. Why. Yes Why.

    But I hope this answer will help you: "You're not alone" but this isn't a complaints Department but MS listens, and they work on it.

    On my XBOX (pre alpha circle) last week i got a new feature to block Information I do not want. So Keep on playing,
    (creepy for me) in the future the AI maybe will fix this.

    I never had this problem and I didn't find an option to disable this "feature" :/

    Hi thanks for the advice. I've tried setting myself to offline, turning off my Xbox then going online using the Windows 10 app on my laptop but I'm still showing offline to friends. Is there a particular way/order I need to do it?

    XBOX Game bar recorded audio glitchy

    Hi EYEcuDV

    My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

    Microsoft is currently working on improvements for the Xbox Game bar. You might want to download and install the beta to see if it helps.

    Here are some things you can try to see if it helps:

    Turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10:

    1. Navigate to the Xbox app within Windows 10.

    2. Select Settings and then Game DVR.

    3. Turn ëRecord game clips and screenshots using Game DVRí to off.

    Turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10 using the registry:

    1. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameDVR.

    2. Change the AppCaptureEnabled DWORD value to 0 to turn it off. Change it to 1 to turn it back on.

    3. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStore.

    4. Change the GameDVR_Enabled DWORD value to 0 to turn it off. Change it to 1 to turn it back on.

    To remove the Game Bar altogether:

    If you would like to remove the Xbox app altogether, try this.

    1. Open a Windows PowerShell as an administrator.

    2. Type or paste ëGet-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackageí

    3. Let the process complete.

    Let us know how it turns out.
