  2. Cannot open Xbox App game bar

    Hi Jamie,

    Issues with saving your video clips or using the Game bar on Windows 10 are possibly caused by an outdated Xbox app or a corrupted folder on Windows Explorer. To resolve your concern, we suggest that you move your saved video clips to another folder within
    the PC. The next saved videos will automatically go to the new folder.

    If the issue persists, reset Windows Store to clear the store cache. Then, uninstall and reinstall the Xbox App to manually update it by following the steps below:

    To reset Windows Store:

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard.   
    • Click on Command prompt (Admin).   
    • Type wsreset.exe, and then hit Enter.   

    To update the Xbox App:

    • Click Start, and then type Windows PowerShell on the search box.  
    • Right-click, and then select Run as administrator.  
    • Type the following command to uninstall Xbox app: Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage  
    • Hit Enter.  
    • Launch Windows Store and download Xbox App.  

    You can also sign in to another use to isolate if there is an issue with your profile.

    Windows 10 Xbox DVR app thinks Chrome is a game

    When setting up the XBox game app, and the XBox DVR game bar, I must have checked the box that Chrome is a game app.

    How do I undo that?

    Every time I open Chrome, the game bar pops up.

    I don't want to select "don't show this again", because then it'll disable it for real game apps. I just want to remove Chrome from the list.

    Thoughts?
