    Mouse cursor displays when recording with Xbox Game Bar


    Whenever I'm recording a game with Xbox game bar, my mouse cursor always appears whenever I hover over the recording part where I see the time recorded and where I can stop the recording. This is exceptionally annoying when I'm playing since sometimes when I try to shoot or do something, it won't register if my mouse is over that spot. It can really ruin gameplay. On my old computer, there would be this mouse button to the right of the clock that I could press to stop it but it isn't showing up on my new PC. I attached a screenshot showing how it looks when I open up the game bar. How do I sto

    Windows cursor appears while using Game Bar to record gameplay

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand that Windows cursor appears on the screen while you are using Game Bar to record gameplay.



    As you have mentioned that when turn off Game Bare the issue stops, in this case, we can try changing some settings in Game Bar and see if that helps in resolving the issue. Kindly refer the steps mentioned below:



    1. Press Windows key + I, to open
      Settings
      .
    2. Click on Gaming and select
      Captures
      from the left pane.
    3. Under Background recording, toggle the switch to right for
      Record in the background while I’m playing a game.
    4. Try recording the game now.


    For additional information, you can refer

    .



    Let us know the results.

    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

      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

    Mouse cursor displays when recording with Xbox Game Bar

    Windows cursor appears while using Game Bar to record gameplay

    I have been using Game Bar to record clips to share with my friends on Xbox ever since I switched to playing Destiny 2 on PC in January. I have continued to use my Xbox controller. In the last couple of months, the Windows cursor has started to randomly
    appear on-screen. I am playing in full-screen. I tried turning off my mouse (a simple Dell Bluetooth device) in case it was something related to it, but it continued to appear. If I play with mouse and keyboard, it doesn't occur (the cursor remains the in-game
    cursor). After updating every driver I could think of, I decided to try turning off Game Bar. The issue stopped. While I can continue to make clips and screenshots if I use Nvidia overlay, I've lost the benefit of easily sharing items with my Xbox friends
    and joining them in party chats.
