    How To Remove Gaming Settings


    Is it possible to remove Gaming Settings in Windows Settings, installed with the latest update? I've already disabled the Game bar.

    sc config XboxGipSvc start= disabled
    sc config XboxNetApiSvc start= disabled
    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\XblGameSave\XblGameSaveTask" /Disable
    takeown /f "%WinDir%\System32\GameBarPresenceWriter.exe" /a
    icacls "%WinDir%\System32\GameBarPresenceWriter.exe" /grant:r Administrators:F /c
    taskkill /im GameBarPresenceWriter.exe /f
    del "%WinDir%\System32\GameBarPresenceWriter.exe" /s /f /q
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameDVR" /v "AppCaptureEnabled" /t REG_DWORD /d "0" /f

    Thanks, TairikuOkami. Game bar and Game mode are off. I want to completely remove Gaming settings in Windows settings--or, at least, hide that option. Is that what the code would do?

    You could type MSCONFIG in your Run box, the then click on the Services Tab, then way down at the bottom you will see your XBox services, UN-Check them all, and reboot. Done.

    I do not think, that you can hide the whole category, look at this this:

    Hide or Show Pages on Settings in Windows 10 Windows 10 General Tips Tutorials

    You could try to remove it from ISO, though you would be probably left with a broken shortcut.

    Thanks, TairikuOkami. I figured as much--I don't want to mess with things and break something else.

    So what does the code do?

    It just disables everything xbox related like services and it removes GameBarPresenceWriter.exe, which runs when it detects a supported game, even when game bar is disabled pretty much everywhere.
