This tutorial will show you how to reset the Xbox Game Bar widget layout back to the default size and position for your account in Windows 11 and Windows 10.

You can open the Xbox Game Bar to take control of all your favorite gaming activities while playing on your Windows device.

The Controller Bar is a view of the Xbox Game Bar that allows you to quickly access games and apps using any Xbox controller.

The Home Bar is the bar at the top of the Game Bar screen. Your favorites will appear on the Home Bar for quicker access to widgets. Open widgets will show underlined on the Home Bar.

To move a widget while on the Game Bar screen, drag it by the title bar to where you want it positioned on your screen and drop it.

To resize a widget while on the Game Bar screen, drag a border that supports resizing.

If needed, you can quickly reset the size and position of all opened widgets back to default at once.
