        • Let me connect a Bluetooth Controller to the PC Easier

          When attempting to connect a Bluetooth controller to the PC, I have to go to Settings. It would be great if I could use Game Bar to quickly pair a controller.

              • Make the Game Bar Display a PC Performance Overlay

                I want to be able to see my CPU, RAM, GPU utilization etc as an overlay on my screen similar to RTSS, EVGA Precision X, etc. Should be easy to just pull the stats that you have in W10 task manger.
