Game Bar - No Screen Recording "Try Again Later"

Copper Contributor



I've tried to reinstall the Xbox and I believe my drivers are up to date as my Adobe products were crashing and I installed NVIDIA etc., but cannot seem to figure out this problem with my screen recording. Just says "We can't record right now. Try again later." Cleared my temporary files and other tips I've found but nothing has worked. Thanks for any help!

Hello @Monica Williams,


This could be due to corrupted Xbox app installation files.


Please try these steps and check if it helps:


1. Open administrative Windows PowerShell.
2. Type/paste following command and press Enter:

Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage

3. Close PowerShell and reboot the machine.

4. After reboot, download and install Xbox app from Microsoft Store.


Hope this helps!
