    Xbox game bar notifications - "starting background recording"


    So ive ran into this problem with game bar, were i get constantly spammed by these game bar notifications stating things like "Starting background recording" and "microphone recording is on" every single damn time i change focus to another program or window. If im focused in firefox, and quickly jump to discord and back, ill get 2 of the same messages after one another stating what i said above. It worked flawless yesterday, and only started acting when i changed the record last 1 min to 3 min instead. Anyone got any idea of what could be wrong?

    :)

    Hiding New Game Bar when Recording

    Hi LeviathanTheEsper,

    Normally, You can play your games while recording it in the background. It seems that background recording is not enabled on your computer that's why the Game bar is showing up when playing your games. Let's check if background recording is enabled by performing
    the following steps:

    1. Press the Windows key, then select the gear icon to access Settings.
    2. Go to Gaming.
    3. Select Game DVR.
    4. Under Background Recording, check if the toggle switch is enabled.

    We look forward to your update.
