With the previous creator’s update in Windows 10, some new features were added to the game bar for better gaming experience but some users are not pleased.

The Game Bar feature in Windows 10 is a stylish smart bar-shaped tool that helps gamers to record their gaming skill and then share it with their friends.

Many people do not have the idea of Game Bar actually, it comes with a couple of additional features such as Game DVR and Xbox Game Monitoring. In this blog, you will also get to know how to disable as well.

How To Disable Windows 10 Game Bar

Whenever you are playing a game on Windows 10 all you have to do is to press Windows key + G from your keyboard or press the Xbox Button from your gamepad so that the Game Bar is visible, but to disable this feature you have to follow these steps:

  • Go into Settings, and then Gaming.
  • Select the Game Bar on the left.

How To Disable Game DVR

Game DVR is an additional part of the Game Bar which helps the players to records their gameplay in the background, it also offers you to quickly save a moment from your gaming session whenever you want. The best use of this feature is to record those surprise moments that make playing games more fun but it uses much of your system’s resources. This is the reason sometimes this feature put some bad influence on the system performance and disabling them helps a lot. To disable the feature follow these steps.

  • Once again, right-click on your Start Button.

How To Disable Xbox Game Monitoring

Xbox game monitoring is a tough program to disable as compared to rest two features. The feature naturally, monitors which game you are presently playing. The reason to disable it is because many people report that it clashes with other amenities and causes performance drops.

Disabling this feature needs a little bit more of your attention as compared to the others because the changes that are required to disable the feature are present in Registry.

Before making any change to your Registry, do not forget to take back up your registry files in case something wrong happens. The registry is almost under the hood of your machine, giving you close access to its inner workings so you can do real damage if you delete the wrong key or entry by mistake.

It will be safe for you if you strictly follow these steps

  • Open the run box (win+r), write regedit in it and then press Enter.
  • Double-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
  • Double click SYSTEM.
  • Double click CurrentControlSet.
  • Double click Services.
  • Click xbgm. You may have to scroll down ways.
  • Right click on the Start REG_DWORD.
  • Hit Modify.
  • Change the default value of 3 to 4.
  • Hit OK.

After finishing all these steps Xbox Game Monitoring feature is now disabled from your Windows. Later if you think to enable it just you just have to change the value from 4 to 3 again.
