  1. Windows Game Bar adds two black columns


    I have been using WIndows Game Bar for over a year and while it isn't an ideal recording software it gets the job done. Recently, I have noticed two black columns when I watch my recordings. They aren't a deal breaker but they are noticeable.

    :)

  3. Black Bars on Sides of the Screen In-Game

    Hi Ahmed,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community.

    I do appreciate your efforts and time.

    As I understand whenever you run the game in lower resolution it does not work (Black bars).

    Did you re-install graphics card drivers?

    I suggest you to try the steps provided below and check if it helps.

    Restart the computer a few times and check for Windows Updates.

    In the Search box on the taskbar, enter Windows Update, select Windows Update. On the Windows Update page, select Check for updates.

    Also refer to the thread for suggestions.

    Some games in fullscreen have black bars on side.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
