Record a game clip on your PC with Xbox Game Bar

Xbox Game Bar is built in to Windows 10 so you can capture videos and screenshots while playing PC games. While you're playing a game, press the Windows logo key + G on your keyboard to open Xbox Game Bar. If you have an Xbox 360 or Xbox One controller plugged in to your PC, press the Xbox button.

  • Select Record from now (the circle) to start a clip, then Stop recording (the square) to end it.

  • Select Take screenshot (the camera icon) to take a picture of what’s happening in the game.

  • For full-screen PC games, use Windows logo key  + Alt + G to start and stop recording.

  • To edit a clip, select the Xbox  button to open the Xbox app and then select Captures.alternate text
