I have posted over many EE questions that some screen recorders or Game capture nolonger function because windows 10 doesn't use Aero so you trick it.
Use the Xbox app to record your screen in Windows 10

My  purchased Fraps will not capture because of this.
Cam studio works fine for desktop capture.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/camstudio/
http://camstudio.org/
So since I have 2 systems I rolled one back to windows 7 for this reason Fraps capture. I did buy it why should I have o drop my purchased programs. Fraps say they are working onit.

The Xbox app comes preinstalled, open your start>all Apps scroll down to Xbox should be listed there.
Please check first before installing new stuff, experts should suggest that you check first as you need to enter this to setup the recording.
Xbox appYou can call up the Game bar by hitting the Windows logo key + G. However, you can’t call it up anywhere. for example, you wouldn’t see it on the bare desktop,
 Try it out in anything else
In other words, this feature appears to be limited to apps and won’t work for system level activities such as desktop.
I am using it over EE page to show you now
Open a web page then try the Win+G
You need to trick it by setting it up in the Xbox app settings here's how to>

If you keep pressing the Win +G and it is running in the back ground, check your taskmanager for Game Bar end task and try again.
