So im one of the few people who actually use gamebar, however recently while reinstalling spotify, i deleted all the files corresponding to spotify as i wanted to install an older version of spotify as im into theming.
I just noticed a while ago that the icons in gamebar is broken. Is there a way to reinstall this widget ? i did check the widget store but found nothing.
Thank you

No matter where you go, there you are
If removing it and adding it again


Does not fix it, you might try and repair or reset it

Add or remove programs> XBox Game Bar> Advanced options> Repair

If no fix, try Reset instead of repair. Reset will reinstall the Game Bar

I don't use it myself, so just some options for you

Have you tried to repair Spotify itself? Or uninstall and reinstall Spotify? Sorry, I have no more ideas :(

You took ownership of both the file and the directory/folder? Try moving from Desktop to the destination?
