How to remove the game bar from certain programs on Windows 10

Windows 10 is the latest version of Windows, and today a lot of geeks prefer using Windows 10 over other editions of Windows for getting regular support and updates after a certain interval of time. Not only that, Windows 10 comes with a lot of handy features and you can expect a new feature or features with every major update. Windows 10 still have some bugs, but if you aren’t an insider, chances are less, you will suffer from those minor issues after every single update. One of the most useful features of Windows 10, which is available from one of the oldest builds, is the ability to record games.

Though the tool is supposed to be used for recording games, it can be seamlessly used to record activities in other programs as well, without any kind of hassles. You just have to hit the key combination ‘Win Key + G’ to open the game bar and record video or take screenshots, whichever is important. This is really a handy feature for a huge class of users. Just in case you hit the keys by mistake, and don’t want to see the game bar spawn every time you open the particular program, there is a way to disable it specifically for the program instead of disabling the feature permanently. It is really irritating to close the game bar every single time you open a certain program.

So without further delay let’s get started with how to disable game bar for individual Windows programs.

The steps to follow

Open the program, where you want to disable the game bar and wait for the game bar message to appear. Once you find that, press the game bar key combination i.e. ‘Win Key + G’.

You can always bring back the game bar for the application by pressing ‘Win Key + G’ and making it remember, the program is a game.

The game bar is really handy, but seeing it every time doesn’t make any sense at all, if you’re into some really important, and don’t want anything to break your attention.
