    Xbox App Game DVR capture save location

    how about this?

    Change where your Game DVR captures are saved on your PC

    Your game clips and screenshots will always be saved in the Captures folder. But you can move that folder anywhere you want on your PC.
    • Go to File Explorer > Videos.
    • Drag the Captures folder where you want it.

  4. why is windows saving game captures to the temp folder

    Xbox Game Bar Captures folder missing

    Xbox Game Bar is supposed to save recordings and screenshots to the Captures folder in Videos. There is no such folder present in Videos. When I check through Settings, the folder it is saving recordings to is C:\Users\pc\AppData\Local\Temp.

    How do I change the location to which they are saved? There is no Captures folder that I can change the location of, so please advise.

    Thanks
