  1. Windows Game Bar not working,


    Every time I try broadcasting a game, a message saying "something went wrong, try again later" appears. I have "let apps run in background" turned on, I also tried turning it off and on. I have tried resetting the game bar, uninstalling and reinstalling the xbox app, and resetting it. Lastly I have everything updated on my computer, at this point im lost, I've tried everything I could find online.

    :)
