    How to get rid of this "Game Bar" without a Microsoft Account?


    Every time I open a game that I run in borderless windowed or windowed mode, I get this stupid "Game Bar" garbage.


    I did a little research, and it seems you can stop it from auto-opening in windowed games by opening the Xbox "app" and disabling it from there. However, whenever I open the Xbox "app", I'm asked to log in with a Microsoft Account. I do not want to do this because I don't have a MS Account, nor do I want one. And it seems that even if you log in with a Microsoft Account, you're forced to create an Xbox Gamertag before you can access the settings.


    How do I stop this garbage "Game Bar" without a Xbox/Microsoft Account?

    Can you post a screenshot, so I can see what this is? I don't recall seeing anything like that, but it might not show on all games.

    It only shows on games that are running in windowed mode, or borderlerss window.

    Clicking "Don't show this again" hides the little bar when you start the game, but the running process is still in the background in Task Manager.
