  1. My microphone on Game Bar keeps turning itself off.


    Particularly, the "turn mic on by default when I record" option in the settings keeps turning itself off when I go into a game. Essentially making the option useless because I still have to manually turn on the microphone setting to have it. I tried with different games and made sure the other microphone options are on but to no avail. Here is a video of the problem in action.
