  1. Windows Game DVR Location Change?


    Hello,

    I am currently using the built in Windows Game DVR, and I want to change the default save location. I have read other threads, but they don't help me at all. I do not have an account with Xbox and I don't plan on getting one. Is there anyway I can do this? I would love to save it on my other HDD.

    Thanks! *Smile

    :)

    Hi,

    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.

    Windows Game DVR Location Change?

    Game bar screenshots and recordings are saved to your %UserProfile%\Videos\Captures folder. As this is a system created folder you can right click on it and go to Properties, Location and use the Move tab to select a new location for it. This new location should then be used by Game DVR for future recordings.
