  1. Xbox Game Bar - Keeps resetting widget layout and sizing when application runs


    Hi all,


    Recently I've been getting a lot of issues with the recent version of Xbox Game Bar for Windows 10, where the overlay keeps resetting its position and scaling whenever I transition from the main display to an application.


    As the gaming application transits to a generic login at 1024x768 resolution, and then to 1920x1080 same as the monitor, the overlay would get jumbled up again. Compared to the previous versions, the layout would stay correct as per my customization when it transits between resolutions instead of getting jumbled up whenever there's a temporary change in resolution.

    I have attempted to Terminate and restart the Game Bar, performed repair using Windows Settings, as well as reinstalling the application. Unfortunately, no success has been observed to revert back to the arrangement where my widgets would stay in their original position.


    I've also sourced through various support and technical forums for solutions but there aren't any answers offered. I would enormously appreciate if there's an advice or workaround, or even better, a fix to rectify this persistent problem.


    Should you have any little to no value of advice to provide, I kindly apologise but to reject your input if appropriate.


    Thank you
