Window key + G for recordings in Windows 11 - Xbox social in gaming

One of the new cool features in Windows 11 is the Xbox game bar. These new options are useful during games to make recordings. But it also gives a practical solution for users who did not want to install extra software for screen recording and taking screenshots.

Press your Windows key + G to launch the Xbox Game Bar. There you will find a Widget menu, Audio (for both audio output and input with microphones and speakers), Capture (screen recording and video), Performance, Resources and Xbox Social.
