This minHour teaches you how to access the NVIDIA overlay using GeForce Experience.
Launch your game.
Since an overlay is intended to display on top of another full-screen program, you’ll need to be running one in order to activate the overlay feature.
Press and hold Alt+Z.
If you don’t see an overlay, you’ll need to open the GeForce Experience application in the background and click the green button on the left side of Settings.
- You can download GeForce Experience from https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/geforce-experience/.
Release the keys when you see the overlay appear.
You can click buttons in the options to take a screenshot, record video, and broadcast your game live to Twitch using the overlay in NVIDIA Share.
- If you aren’t sure if your computer can run Shadowplay or NVIDIA Share, launch GeForce Experience then click the My Rig tab and check the Shadowplay or NVIDIA Share tab.
- Update your drivers, close third-party apps, and repair your Visual C++ Suite if you’re running into issues and can’t use NVIDIA Overlay.
