Multiple times throughout the week, the xbox game bar attempts to screen-record my PC, without me triggering the action. It fails with an error most of the time, but it succeeds sometimes.
For example, I'm just browsing reddit and some other site, 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 has happens multiple times every week. This ghost-triggered recording attempts succeed sometimes, I see the recording control overlay at the right edge of screen and later I find the recording in the captures folder.
I've already gone to Windows Setting > Apps > xbox game bar > Advance settings and done terminate + repair + reset. Still this keeps happening.
I've done a full scan (and offline scan too) of the entire PC using Windows Defender and Malwarebytes. They didn't find any threats.
I've submitted a bug report via the Windows Feedback app ~2 month ago. But got no response.
xbox game bar on Windows 10 laptop attempts recording the screen, without me triggering it.
Why is this happening? How do I stop this?
