How to make Windows 10 Game Bar appear on game?


I made a game using SDL and OpenGL in C++, which is of course common for games. Windows 10 should be able to detect that it's a game and show the Game Bar when starting it, but it doesn't. What can I do to make Windows 10 detect it as a game?


Windows cannot "detect" that you are playing a game. There is literally no way for it to magically work that out. Heck, I can think of a number of kinds of programs that a <em>human</em> would have difficulty categorising as a game or not (such as Stack Overflow, which doesn't use OpenGL or SDL whatsoever!).

Load up the game bar with Win+G, and check "Yes, this is a game" so that Windows remembers for next time.
