Try disabling Xbox Game Bar!

I changed two registry values and it seems to have solved the issue for me.

Follow these steps to disable Game Bar via Windows Registry:

  1. Open registry editor
  2. Export / backup your current registry before making changes
  3. Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStore]
  4. Find the key “GameDVR_Enabled” and set its value to 0
  5. Navigate to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameDVR]
  6. Find the key “AppCaptureEnabled” and set its value to 0

Note: If a key does not exist, simply right click within the specified folder and click create new DWORD, then make sure you enter the name in exactly as it appears here, without quotes.

Alternatively you can copy and paste the following text into notepad, save it as a .reg file, and then double click it to apply the settings.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStore]
"GameDVR_Enabled"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameDVR]
"AppCaptureEnabled"=dword:00000000

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
