    Xbox gamebar social menu not appearing


    Im on pc, and I can't see the xbox gamebar social menu anymore. I've tried to re enable it but its not it settings like all the other widgets. It kinda just disappeared overnight. I don't get an error message, and the only thing that is missing right now is the social menu where I can join and invite friends from. As of now, I can't recieve invites or see friends online. I'm not sure if this is a me specific problem or if I have to go and update something for this to work properly. So sorry for the issue Xbox gamebar social menu not appearing :(

    :)

    Xbox gamebar social menu not appearing

    Hello, Echo747. I'm Arturo, a community user like you, and I'll be glad to provide assistance with your inquiry today.

    Based on the information you provided, I would like to suggest some potential fixes. Please try recording after performing each one.

    A. Verify that you have the latest version of the game bar installed. You can check for app updates by opening the Microsoft Store > Library > Get Updates.

    Once everything is up-to-date, restart your PC and try again.

    B. Press the Windows key and type Game Bar, then right-click on it and click on “App Settings”.
    Then click on “repair” and "reset”.
    After this, restart your PC before trying again.

    C. Open a new PowerShell window as administrator.
    Then copy and paste the following command:

    Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage

    Restart your PC after running the command, open the Microsoft Store, and install the game bar from there. Then, verify if the social menu appears.

    D. Right-click on the Windows button and select PowerShell (run as an administrator)
    Then, run the following command: (You may want to copy and paste the entire command)

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_. InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}.

    This command can take a while to end, but when the process ends, you should be able to type in the PowerShell window.

    After that, please restart your computer and check the game bar.

    I'll look forward to hearing your comments.

    Regards,

    Arturo.

    Looking For Group PC To Console

    Open Gamebar open Gamebar Widget Menu and add "Looking for group". Done.

    Open Console Companion and do like always. Done

    Don't open Xbox App because Xbox App is not Gamebar nor Companion.

    Performance Tab on gamebar is missing

    Hey Sengutso!

    Sounds like you are having GameBar issues! Take a look at our Gamebar support articles:

    Troubleshoot Game Bar on Windows 10


    Keep in mind with updates sometimes certain features are made unavailable. This may not be the case in this instance but it is a possibility.

    Let me know if this helps

    Xbox menus and social problems

    You have a good point but if i was to do so i would be excluding that other person and i just believe there is a better solution than getting your friends to picks sides on whos party they want to join because that is the reality, it drive people away not
    brings them together which is what it has the potential to do i am sure not many people have this problem but when you do it is very hard to solve it and that is why i have typed this.

    thank you for listening

    Xbox menus and social problems

    You say your friends are fine in real life, but they are mean online? Um, yeah, I guess we have different definitions for what we mean by the word friends. Seems like at the very least you need to expand your circle, and start playing with other folks.

    As well as the lfg function on console etc, Check out ambassador streams. There are always cool folks there, and they are pretty inclusive, hang around, get to know some of them, engage, join games etc... but you defo shouldn't be tolerating that kind if
    nonsense, even from "friends"
