    Xbox Game Bar Issues


    As of yesterday, my Xbox Game Bar has stopped working, I am unable to open it at all. I have tried to reset and repair the app with no success after multiple attempts. I have then resorted to following the support forum and have tried to edit things in the registry but with no success as they were what they should be. I have also uninstalled the app using Windows Powershell and reinstalled it again, yet again with no luck. Yesterday, the process could be seen in task manager, but today it isn't there, or at least I cannot see it.

    I don't really know what to do at this point as I have tried everything, I was considering the possibility of completely removing everything to do with it and then reinstalling but I have no idea how to do that either.
