The Game bar is a Xbox app Game DVR feature that lets you record and share game clips and screenshots in Windows 10. However, you can also use the Game bar to record and take screenshots of any app in Windows 10.

When you open the Game bar for a specific app or game, that specific game or app is remembered as a game by the Game DVR. This way you will be able to use the Game bar keyboard shortcuts and no longer have to check the Yes, this is a game box to open the Game bar for that app or game.
