  1. Xbox Game Bar PC Not starting properly


    It's been fine the last few days, but whenever I press the key to open it (WIN+G) It locks my mouse so I can't interact with anything on my desktop or in game however the game bar never actually appears. When I press the key to open it again, my mouse
    will return to normal.

    Does MS seem to have limited purse strings?

    I'd love to use the game bar in pc games, it be good to share screen shots with friends on xbox. The thing just doesn't work properly in full screen though. I managed to take a screen of a game on pc through the game bar, when I went to share it, it just
    came up as not recognised. Think it was the witcher.

    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.

    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..
