Microsoft today is rolling out a small, but incredibly handy update to the Game Bar on Windows 10. Now, you'll be able to review your screenshots and videos that you've taken without having to leave your game, meaning you can jump right back into the action.
Xbox's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb revealed the update on Twitter, noting that it's beginning to roll out today. All of your captures can be pulled up in a dedicated gallery window, from which you can add text and post them directly to Twitter.

It's a small update, but if you share a lot of your gameplay to Twitter, it's sure to be preferable over exiting your game every time you need shoot something out to Twitter.

Awesome feature! Thanks for implementing
I absolutely ******* LOVE Game Bar and I wish they'd push that more and more. Mixer would KILL if they went all in with it.
Zero setup to stream, minimal lag, if any, and then little features like this?
I hate the fact that game mode is always on now by default but I LOVE being able to control different app volume levels IN-GAME without Alt-Tabing out.
Long story short
Game "Bar" (Because its not a bar anymore)
Really good guide, Did not know what to do before this. But this guide was very simple and had so much info.
Really useful feature.
