  1. "can't record right now try again later" window when trying to record the screen.


    Good morning!

    So, basically, I was using the Xbox game bar for study purposesrecording zoom calls, skype calls, etc., also sometimes I used it for games and everything worked finewas using that feature for as long as I had my computer 3-4 years. But I think 2-3 days ago I found out that I can't record anymore. Actually, I was thinking that I couldn't record a specific app, and cause it was a VS c++ program I wrote myself. So I wasn't so much concerned about that problem. But yesterday I was trying to record it again, and after trying to use the feature on any programs/games, It didn't work.

    So, I tried everything. I contacted Microsoft support and was provided with some ideas: I reinstalled the app, I cleared all temporary files, updated windows with the media tool, also scanned for any corrupted system files, checked if there is some problem regarding one program interacting with another. Nothing worked. Also updated all my drivers. Tried on local user. Nothing. Still not working. I have 2 days till I really need it.

    Ofc, I can use another recording program, but I don't think that it's a good idea to leave some PC problems unsolved.

    So, any ideas what else I can do to resolve this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    Michael

    Where to find Windows 10 Screen recorder

    Hello,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    When you say Screen recorder are you referring to Problem Step recorder?

    Steps Recorder is a feature which can automatically capture the steps you take on the computer. It also creates a text description of where you clicked and
    the screen shot during each click. To get more information about the Step recorder feature please check the steps below.

    How to open and use Steps Recorder:

    • In the search bar type Step recorder and click on it.
    • At the right side of steps recorder, click on the
      dropdown arrow.
    • Choose Settings to continue.
    • Under settings Name the file and specify
      saved location.
    • In the Steps Recorder Settings dialog box, click Browse button.
    • Name output file, choose file type (e.g
      ZIP Files
      or XML Files), specify saved location and click
      Save.
    • After making the above changes Enable Screen Capture option by selecting
      “YES”.
    • Set number of screen captures and click on OK. (By default the number of screen capture is set to 25.)
    • You can use the features of step recording like Start Record, Pause Record, Resume Record, Add Comment
      and Stop Record while using the step recorder.
    • Later you can check for the output of the file that you have worked on.

    Note: You will not be able to create short videos of the screen recording using this application.
