    Hello KevinHigginsAus,

    I'm John an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you. I'll be happy to assist you today. I understand you have a problem with Xbox Game Bar. Did you made any changes recently? When was the last time it was working Properly? What is your current Windows

    Please try this if it helps.

    **Run the troubleshooter:

    Select the Start button, and then select Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot, and then from the list select Windows Store apps > Run the troubleshooter.

    Press the Windows Logo Key + R to open the Run dialog box, type wsreset.exe, and then select OK.

    Note:

    A blank Command Prompt window will open, and after about ten seconds the window will close and Microsoft Store will open automatically.

    Restart your PC then check again Xbox Game Bar

    **Update Xbox Game Bar app.
