    Restore Default Location of Game DVR Captures Folder in Windows 10


    Hi Shawn. I was wondering why is my captures folder still empty eventhough I transfer it and also restore it to default? >< I've tried to screenshot several times but it's not inside the folder. I sent my laptop for service before this , and I transferred the photos out of my laptop. So I believe it's because of that? But I'm not really sure.

    :)

    Hello Leyn, and welcome to Ten Forums. *Smile

    When you take a screenshot using the Game DVR (Win+G), where does it show it being saved at instead?
