    Xbox Game Bar capture options greyed out, can't find options in settings (Windows 11)


    I've had this problem for a few months now where I can't capture photos or video or do anything in xbox game bar because the options are greyed out. I've tried going into the settings to see if there was any options disabled but I only recently realized after seeing someone else's screenshot there is supposed to be an entire wall of options under "Recording preferences" that's literally just not there on my end.

    Any help would be incredibly appreciated.

    Hello, first it's a pleasure to be able to help you today.

    My name is welcome to the community.

    Hello Maybemawie, have you checked if you have the latest version of Windows installed, at 21H2, because recently came out the latest update to Windows 10 and 11.

    See which version of Windows 10 you have

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/see...

    Updates often seen as optional, Microsoft released major fixes this week, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed.

    If you haven't updated yet, click the link below, update and then make all subsequent security updates.

    Download Windows 10

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    Download Windows 11

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo...

    Also make sure all Xbox Apps are up to date in the store, and make sure you have the Xbox Companion App installed, it works with the Xbox App.

    How to switch between the vertical and horizontal versions of Xbox game bar in Windows?

    Hi, my name is Fernando and I am an independent consultant for Microsoft products.

    There should be an option in your game bar settings to adjust this. Check your game bar settings here :

    - Right-click the Start button.
    - Click Settings.
    - Click Gaming.
    - Click Game DVR.

    If you didn't found the option to change the orientation, you can refer to the following link for more information:

    https://support.xbox.com/en-us/help/games-apps/...
    I have already checked all settings related to Xbox Game Bar but no use.

    I can't see Game DVR in Windows 11.
    I have checked Settings > Gaming > Captures also. (it is related to DVR)

    I have also checked Xbox Game Bar Settings.

    how do i disable gamebar for certain games

    You can completely disable the Game Bar if you go to your Windows Settings>Gaming, first thing you will see there is an option to be able to use the Game Bar for recordings ands friends, you can disable it. If you only want to diable recordings go to Settings>Gaming>Captures, there you will find an option to disable the Background Recording characteristic

    Xbox Game Bar not recording my microphone audio.

    Hi SG Silverr,

    Thanks for reaching out to the forums! We are sorry to hear about your issue. It sounds as though the "capture audio when recording a game" option may be turn off on your pc. TO activate this setting on Windows 10/11 go to Start/Settings/Gaming/Captures and turn this feature on.
