Tips / Knowledge

Hello!This time, I will show you how to disable the function called Xbox Game Bar.

This Xbox GameBar is"Windows key"+"G"It is a still image / video capture software that can be started with. Although it is installed as standard on Windows 10, it will be a useful function for those who are doing video distribution and blogging.

Appearance of starting Xbox Game Bar

However, it is also an annoying function when it is not intended, such as suddenly starting up during general usage.If you are using Windows in a company, there may be cases where confidential materials are captured, which may be a risk.

If you don't need this feature at all, disable it!

Let's disable the Xbox GameBar

How to disable from Windows settings (set in UI)

At the bottom left of the desktop screen, [Start button: Click [Windows logo] to open the menu, and then click [Configuration: Click the gear mark.

The Windows settings screen will open.GameClick.

Then, the setting screen of XboxGameBar will open. Click the switch shown below to turn it off.

This completes the invalidation!

After setting,"Windows key"+"G"Nothing happens when I try to start with!

How to set with registry key

Alternatively, you can set it with the registry key.
The same effect can be obtained by changing the following registry.
* Since it is for advanced users, how to use the registry editor is omitted.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ GameDVR
Set AppCaptureEnabled to a value of 0

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ System \ GameConfigStore
Set GameDVR_Enabled to a value of 0

If you want to enable it again, change it to [1].

Unfortunately, this method only disables the configured user.
If you want to log in as another user or set it up in your enterprise, another method may be more suitable.

Try disabling only the video capture function

How to set by policy * Windows 10 pro or higher edition only

"Windows key"+"R"Press to start Run.
Enter "gpedit.msc" in the name form and press the "OK" button.

The Group Policy Editor will start. Click "Computer Configuration"-> "Administrative Templates"-> "Windows Game Recording and Broadcasting", and then double-click "Enable or Disable Windows Game Recording and Broadcasting". Open with.

Click "Disable" and then OK to complete.

This setting launches GameBar but disables the video capture feature.

How to set in the registry

You can also set it in the registry as in the case of complete invalidation earlier.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows \ GameDVR
Set AllowGameDVR to value: XNUMX

If you want to restore this, set it to "XNUMX" again to enable it.

Last resort!Let's uninstall it!

You can uninstall it by executing the following command in PowerShell started by the administrator.
* Because it is for advanced users, the method of executing it as an administrator is omitted.

Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPakage

This will completely seal the application, but"Windows key"+"G"This will open a message window like the one below, so it is not recommended.

I think this method can only be used if you want to completely disable the function.
By the way, if you want to restore this, click "Search for apps in Microsoft Store" and install from the Store to start it.

If you click "Search for apps in Microsoft Store"

Reinstalling requires an internet connection and a Microsoft account, so it looks like it can only be used as a real, really last resort.

To the end

The above is the result of examining the information related to disabling the Xbox GameBar.
I thought it would be safest to set it on the Windows setting screen for each user for normal use.

Surprisingly, it seems to be linked with the deep part of Windows, and I think that it is harder to fail in later updates etc. if you just disable the function rather than uninstalling it unnecessarily.

I hope it helps you.
