Recommended Posts

When you are playing the game on full screen, you might not notice the programs running in the background. If some of the notifications are on and they might pop up, sometimes this can hinder the game bar recording. So you need to close the game and go to Desktop to run the Task Manager. Open the app by pressing the Keys CTRL + Shift + Esc together. Notice that any program which uses the CPU heavily can be a problem. Remove any such program while using the Game bar to record the screen.

Select the process and click on End task in the bottom right of the tab.
