    How to make XBOX Game Bar record the whole screen?


    The XBOX Game Bar is really great, but it seems to zero in on whatever application you start it on. If you open up a file explorer to add an image, or pull up a small pop-up within a web browser, it doesn't capture that on the recording.


    Is there a way to change this setting so that it captures everything on screen?

    :)

    I understand that you are facing issues while recording microphone audio using game bar while playing games.



    I would suggest you to try troubleshooting Game Bar and see if that helps. Refer the article

    In addition, you can also check if the Microphone for game bar is enabled under privacy settings.



    1. Go to Settings (press Windows +
      I key together) > Privacy.
    2. On the left hand pane scroll down and look for
      Microphone
      .
    3. Toggle Allow apps to access Microphone
      to ON.
    4. Under Choose which Microsoft Store app can access your Microphone toggle Xbox game bar to
      ON.
    5. Restart the game bar.

    How to make XBOX Game Bar record the whole screen?

    Xbox game bar records as a black screen

    You "Windows independent consultants" never cease to make me laugh. Are you guys so untrained in your profession that you have not the slightest clue how your own company's products work? Your "solution" has no relevance to the problem I presented.

    1.

    "Turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10:

    1. Navigate to the Xbox app within Windows 10."

    The purpose of the Windows 10 Xbox app is to:

    "Discover and download new games with Xbox Game Pass, see what your friends are playing and chat with them across PC, mobile, and Xbox console." (taken from the xbox website).

    The Xbox companion app is designed to help users discover games and communicate with friends. The Xbox Game Bar is a gaming overlay pre-installed in Windows 10 that allows for screen capturing, broadcasting, and other gaming features. I fail to understand
    how the Xbox app will help me in any way, when my problems lies in the fact that my recording software (Xbox game bar) is failing to function.

    2.

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

    Just turn it off and turn it back on again. LOOOOOOOLLLLLL. 4Head. I won't even address this one.

    3.

    "To remove the Game Bar altogether:

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

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA. Wow, gee, why didn't I think to just UNINSTALL my recording software. Wouldn't that help me record my games so much better? LOOOOOOOOLLLL.

    In all seriousness, online forum customer service for enterprise-scale corporations such as Microsoft is atrocious all across the board. Employers think that just because they're making tremendous profits that their products are well-liked and without problems.
    Just by taking a simple look at any online forum (Dell, Microsoft, AT&T), one can see that thousands of questions are left unanswered, or at the very best, given a copy-and-pasted response from a foreign "customer service" employee with no clue as to how their
    company's product or software works at a fundamental level.

    Do not let these corporations get away with this! As an employee of Microsoft, you have a civic duty to the community to uphold. Only when one becomes educated in their rights can one make an impact. Down with corporate tyranny! The Reds shall not be suppressed!

    Btw, I fixed the problem myself. There was a disparity between the screen Xbox game bar was recording and the one I was on. This resulted in Xbox game bar trying to record a different screen from the one I was on (Overwatch), and creating a black screen
    half the time. Enjoy your day How to make XBOX Game Bar record the whole screen? :)
