Recently, Microsoft hopes to remind Windows 10 users of this feature through a new ad posted on the official Xbox YouTube account.

press Win + G game bar shortcut

Have you watched the ad vedio from YouTube? This is a liitle bit complicated advertisement. Two women are in the sauna bathroom talking about how to press the Win + G keyboard shortcut on a laptop to give an angel wings. This is kind of a bizarre play on the popular phrase from It’s A Wonderful Life.

In the video, the Game Bar windows appeared just for a few seconds, which does not really let the audience know the specific function of Game Bar.

Instead, its main focus seems to be to help audiences remember keyboard shortcuts Win + G and activate them by repeating Win + G several times.

However, the keyboard shortcut itself is actually one of the easiest keyboard shortcuts to remember in Windows 10, as it’s just the Windows Key and the first letter of Game. However, the advertisement seems to be for puns. Like, when you add G at the end of a win, you get wing. Many users haven’t thought of this and it’s just someone pointed this out on Youtube.

What do you think of the advertisement? Do you like it?
