Windows 10 Game Bar Error "Can't Record Right Now, Try Again Later"

I have Windows 10 (64-Bit), and the recording software it came with (gamebar) doesn't work correctly.

If I try to open it using WindowsKey + G it just says "Can't Record Right Now, Try Again Later"  

Also, the Troubleshooting page for the Gamebar does Not have the Answer to fixing this, I've already checked

    Let us know how it goes.

     Any of those tips didn't help either.

    Its only when I try to record minecraft since its fine with some other games I play.

    Another reason why you're still encountering the same issue is due to corrupted Xbox app installation files. To resolve this, we recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the Xbox app. Here are the steps:

    1. Launch Windows PowerShell as an administrator. To do this, click Start > All apps > Windows PowerShell
    2. Right-click Windows PowerShell and click More > Run as Administrator.
    3. In theWindows PowerShell window, copy and paste the following command: Get-AppxPackage *xboxapp* | Remove-AppxPackage
    4. Restart your computer so that the changes can take effect. Make sure that you save and close any apps that you have opened before you restart.
