Xbox Game Bar notification saying "Recording isn't working" randomly pops up; without gaming.

2020-05-12, 2:49 AM

Lenovo Legion Y740, Intel core i7 9750H, 17.3" 144Hz GSync, RTX 2080MQ, 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, Windows 10, v1909 (Build 18363.815) 

 

 

I'm just browsing reddit, and out of nowhere, this notification pops up - 

 

 

I haven't launched any Xbox Game Pass games in last few days and haven't triggered the game bar via win + G. Nothing should be "recording" in the first place. This happens multiple times every week, during any number of random activities.

 

It doesn't always fail either. Sometimes I notice the small "recording" overlay on my screen and then I find the recorded screen video in the xbox game bar captures folder.

 

So, what's causing this and how to stop this from auto launching?

 

I don't have xbox game bar in my startup items. And I've ran a full scan of the PC using windows defender and malwarebytes. They didn't find any threats.

This issue stopped for me only after upgrading to Windows 11. In Windows 10, I had to keep Game Bar disabled.
