Easily Record PC Gameplay using Xbox App


  • Go to the Start Menu
  • Click on the cog icon to open Settings
  • Click on “Gaming”
  • Make sure the switch at the top labeled “Record game clips, screenshots, and broadcast using Game bar” is toggled to On


Open up the application window you want to record. It may help to close 
or minimize other windows to avoid accidentally recording the wrong one. Also, make sure any audio you don’t want in the recording is off, even if it’s from a different app or window — even though the screen recorder only records one window at a time, it will still record all of the audio playing across applications on the device.

Press the Windows key + G to open up Xbox Game Bar

You can click on the microphone button to enable external audio recording so you can add commentary or do a voiceover. (You’ll still record internal audio either way.)
There is a number of other options that you can play with before you start recording. For example, using the “System sounds” section of the Audio window, you can lower the audio or mute any sounds from specific apps that happen to be open. Whenyou have a moment, take some time to experiment.

When you’re ready, click on the Record button (the one with a dot in it) to start recording.
Alternatively, if you know that all of your options are set the way you want them, you can simply press Windows + Alt + R to start recording without going into the Game Bar.
Either way, you’ll get a small pop-up bar with a timer and two recording controls. Click on the microphone button to switch your external mic on and off (your internal mic will still be on).

When you’re done, click on the stop button in the recording bar or press Windows + Alt + R to stop recording

Once you finish recording, a notification will pop up on the right side of your screen, saying “Game clip recorded.” You can click on that to open the “Captures” folder in File Explorer.

Alternatively, you can find your recording through File Explorer. Go to “This PC” >“Videos” > “Captures.”
