    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    For better clarity, please let us know:

    • Which application are you using to record the screen?
    • Are you aware of any changes made to the computer recently?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently? To check type:
      winver in the search bar on the Taskbar and hit

    If you are using Game Bar to record the screen, I suggest you to refer the steps mentioned below:

    Change Game Bar settings:

    I would suggest you to change the capture settings for Game Bar and see if that helps. Refer the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press Windows Logo key + I, to open
    2. Click on Gaming.
    3. Click on Captures on the left pane.

      Video frame rate
      to 60 fps.
    5. Now, set the Video quality to
      from the drop down.

    Change the game video settings:

    You may also want to change the video settings for the game to full screen windowed mode.

    Check Xbox Game Monitoring service:

    1. Press Windows Logo key + R, to open
      Run dialog box.
    2. Type services.msc and click on
    3. Scroll down and look for Xbox Game Monitoring, and see if the service is running.

  3. Changed location of captured video


    If you can no longer see the location option on the capture folder, you may restore your Game DVR Captures folder location settings. After restoring the game DVR Captures folder location settings, then you can change your Game DVR Captures folder location
    again. To do this, you may follow the steps below:

    How to restore Game DVR Captures folder location settings

    • Open File Explorer.
    • Browse to the Captures folder location.
    • Right-click the Captures folder and select Properties.
    • Click the Location tab.
    • Click the Restore Defaults button.
    • Click Apply.
    • Click Yes to recreate the folder in the old location.
    • Click Yes to move the content of the Captures folder to the old location, and wait a few moments.
    • Click OK.

    Note: After you've completed the steps, the Captures folder will return with all its content to its default location: C:\Users\%username%\Videos\Captures.

    After performing the steps above, try to change the location of your captured video.

    Kindly update us with the results.

    Screen Capture software


    Upon checking on your concern, we have found a suggestion that may help you take a screenshot of the dropdown menu using the Snipping tool. Please follow the steps below:

    • Launch Snipping tool.
    • Right-click the menu you wish to take a screenshot.
    • Press CTRL + Fn+ Print Scrn.
    • Once you've already taken the print screen of the menu, you may try using the snipping tool and check if it will be able to capture the drop down menu.

    Let us know how it goes.
