    Default Disabling Game DVR and Game Bar fixed FPS cap problem at fullscreen mode

    I suddenly realized games started running at 60 FPS despite the fact that I have a 165 Hz monitor and that nVidia control center settings are just fine. It just started out of blue and previously there was no such problem. Maybe some Windows update triggered it but I just can't remember what could have done it. Anyways. I started googling the problem and tweaking with settings and I somewhere read that disabling Game DVR and Game Bar via windows settings can fix the issue. I did it and boom the problem got fixed. I am not sharing how to disable them as there is plenty of information out there but if you have trouble, write here and I and others can help.

    The Game Bar in Windows 10 is an Xbox-type app that allows you to record gameplay and take screenshots.
    If you use an Xbox controller on your PC and hit the Xbox button, you should see a prompt on your computer asking you if you want to use the Game Bar.
    If you would prefer to manually turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10, here’s how.


    While pretty good at what it does, there are many third-party apps that can capture gameplay and either stream it or keep it for your own use.
    If you don’t want to use the Game Bar, here is how to control it.


    Turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10
    1. Navigate to the Xbox app within Windows 10.
    2. Select Settings and then Game DVR.
    3. Turn ‘Record game clips and screenshots using Game DVR’ to off.


    Turn the Game Bar on or off in Windows 10 using the registry
    You can also disable the Game Bar using the registry.
    1. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\GameDVR.
    2. Change the AppCaptureEnabled DWORD value to 0 to turn it off. Change it to 1 to turn it back on.
    3. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\GameConfigStore.
    4. Change the GameDVR_Enabled DWORD value to 0 to turn it off. Change it to 1 to turn it back on.


    To remove the Game Bar altogether
    If you would like to remove the Xbox app altogether, try this.
    1. Open a Windows PowerShell as an administrator.
    2. Type or paste ‘Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage’
    3. Let the process complete.

    Unless your anal I really don't recogmend removing it as it may interfer with other programs
    just go down the list and check off all the ones you dont need or want running in the background.
