Home » Windows 10 Game Bar improved with full-screen support

Gaming in Windows 10 is very important to Microsoft; the company has stated as much numerous times. Therefore, the company constantly tries to improve the gaming experience for Windows 10 gamers.

To do so, Windows 10 introduced the Game Bar, a special bar that pops up while you’re playing games. This bar allows you to take screenshots, record, stream, and more. Since its introduction, the Game Bar hasn’t received any significant changes until the Anniversary Update, when Microsoft added support for six full-screen games.

Microsoft now continues to bring Game Bar support for full-screen games. The latest Creator’s Update Preview build brought support for as many as 19 new titles to the table. So, players of these games will be now able to legitimately use the Game Bar during game play.

The list of now-supported games:

  • ARMA 3

  • Battlefield 1

  • Civilization V

  • Dark Souls III

  • Fallout 4

  • Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

  • Mad Max

  • Mafia 2

  • NBA 2K16

  • Overwatch

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic

  • StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

  • The Binding of Isaac

  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

  • Terraria

  • Tom Clancy’s The Division

  • Total War: WARHAMMER

  • Warframe

  • World of Tanks

Seeing all these games being included at once is definitely encouraging. Although Microsoft hasn’t said anything about supporting more games, we certainly hope the Game Bar will find its way to even more titles by the time the Creators Update is released in 2017.

To make sure the Game Bar appears every time you launch a supported game, go to the Windows Game bar settings. In the settings dialog, make sure the “Show Game bar when I play full-screen games” option is enabled.

Do you like the latest lineup of Game Bar-supported games? Are there any other games you’d like to see being supported in the near future? Let us know in the comments.
