Windows 10 also installs some Universal (UXP) applications whenever you sign in for the first time. But, not all these applications are suitable to use along with a keyboard and mouse. One such feature is also the Xbox Game speech window as well as the Xbox game bar. That is the gaming overlay you guys may also encounter when you play games. Even though it is intended for enhanced features, it can also be distracting. You can delete the Xbox game speech window via following the below-listed guide.

Use Powershell to Remove the Xbox Gaming Overlay app completely

You guys can delete any default and pre-installed apps via running Powershell in Windows 10:

  • Just open the start menu as well as press the Windows key on the keyboard and then search for ‘Powershell’ and press Enter.
  • Right Click on Powershell and then choose ‘Run as administrator’. You can directly tap on Ctrl+Shift+Enter as well. Just do not skip this step as it is important for all the following steps to be successful.
  • Then type the following code and click on Enter:
Get-AppxPackage|Select Name,PackageFullName
  • This will basically provide the list of all the Universal applications installed on your system.
  • Save the list through redirecting the output to a file via the code:
Get-AppxPackage | Select Name, PackageFullName >"$env:userprofile\Desktop\myapps.txt"

  • The file will actually be saved to your Desktop as myapps.txt. Browse the list for the apps you guys want to be removed.
  • Just use the below code for removing individual apps as well.
Remove-AppxPackage "PackageFullName"

For Example: For removing Minecraft you have to use the following code:

Remove-AppxPackage Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_1.0.700.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

Or you can also use

Get-AppxPackage *Minecraft* | Remove-AppxPackage
  • In order to remove the Xbox Gaming Overlay app, you have to type the following command and hit Enter:
get-appxpackage *Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay* | remove-appxpackage
  • If you guys want to delete all the applications and packages related to Xbox then just type the below command to remove it all at once:
Get-ProvisionedAppxPackage -Online | Where-Object { $_.PackageName -match "xbox" } | ForEach-Object { Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage -Online -PackageName $_.PackageName }
  • For removing the Xbox features for all the users just you can pass the ‘allusers’ command:
Get-ProvisionedAppxPackage -Online | Where-Object { $_.PackageName -match "xbox" } | ForEach-Object { Remove-ProvisionedAppxPackage -Online -AllUsers -PackageName $_.PackageName }

Or you guys can also use the simpler version as:

Get-AppxPackage -allusers *PackageName* | Remove-AppxPackage
  • When done, then the Xbox game speech window won’t disturb you any further.

Use the Context Menu in Start | Xbox Game Speech Window

You can also remove or uninstall the applications directly through the context menu in Start. Tap on Start and find the application in the app list on the left as well. Right-tap on the application you want from the context menu and then tap on ‘Uninstall’. The process should work for all the UWP and also classic Desktop applications.

Turn off the Game Bar for Instant Result

The easiest way in order to remove the Xbox game speech window is just to change the Game bar settings:

  • Head to Settings on your computer as well as directly tap on Windows key + I on your keyboard. And then tap on the ‘Gaming’ icon.
  • Tap on the ‘Game Bar’ on the left side menu as well.
  • Now Toggle off the button that is under ‘Record game clips, screenshot, and broadcasting game bar’.

You guys won’t see the Xbox Game bar the next time you play games or accidentally tap on the Windows key + G shortcut. You can also change the Windows key + G shortcut for any other applications if you need it. Also, you can easily change it in the Keyboard Shortcuts section in the Game Bar as well.

Remove additional Xbox apps | Xbox Game Speech Window

If you guys search on a PC, you’ll find some Xbox-related applications still on the PC. Whenever you cannot remove system-level settings and applications as well. Such as Game Bar and also Xbox Networking, you guys can still delete the following now:

  • Xbox Game Overlay
  • Xbox Gaming Overlay
  • Also, Xbox Identify Provider
  • Xbox Speech To Text Overlay

Again, you have to remember to back up the files before deleting the application through PowerShell in case something goes wrong. You will use PowerShell just like you actually did to delete the main Xbox application. But, you will enter them one by one. Tap on Enterafter each line and then just wait for the removal process to complete.

Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Xbox.TCUI | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxGameOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay | Remove-AppxPackage

So as with deleting the main Xbox application, if you guys encounter any errors, then just change the Microsoft section of the line to * app name * , where appname is basically the application listed from Microsoft. For example, Microsoft.XboxGameOverlay will actually become * xboxgameoverlay *.

When done, then please restart the computer. Some files may still not disappear actually. These are the leftover application files as well. You guys can use a search engine to find these files and delete them as well. You can also use Windows built-in tools as well as system cleaners.
