Solved. It was a mapping issue with ctrl+g and the Keyboard settings

    Problem in Win11 with XBox Gaming Center pop up when shortcut key is used ctrl+g. Need shortcut ctrl+g to group like you do with objects in PPT and Windows keeps wanting to direct me to XBox Gaming Center.

    - MacOS M2 MacBook running Parallels and Windows 11 and using a PC mapped external ergonomic Logitech keyboard in MacOS to Parallels to Win11 like you would have for a Windows computer running this Logitech PC keyboard. I am not using the MacBook internal keyboard due to ergonomic reasons and want the Logitech to be mapped just like it was if I was using Windows standalone computer (so the external PC keyboard is mapped like a PC).

    - I have tried terminating XBox gaming center, I have disabled it, restarted and still getting the same XBox gaming when I try to use the shortcut ctrl+g for grouping items in Windows 11

    - I installed PowerToys and can get into the PowerShell, just seeing if someone has a link/resource or option for resolving this, I just want to group objects
    - using external Logitech keyboard mapped just like you would have with Windows in the MacOS and Parallels with Win11 environments (ctrl+c, ctrl+v work fine, just not with ctrl+g) NOT using my MacBook built in keyboard because I need the ergonomics with the Logitech PC keyboard so it's mapped just like using the shortcuts with Windows, just can't get ctrl+g to group

    On MacBook M2 with Parallels running Windows 11. I have mapped the Logitech keyboard to work just like it would with Windows and set the Win11 in Parallels environment to be USA Qwerty and not the Apple keyboard.

    I am trying to use ctrl+g on the Logitech PC keybaord to group items in existing software (simliar to PPT) for work items that just need grouped. I use the shortcut ctrl+g regularly and now with getting Windows 11 installed yesterday the XBox Game Bar feature keeps popping up instead of grouping and it's now driving me bonkers and I simply do not need XBox gaming for work stuff and just want to be able to use the shortcut ctrl+g to group items for work.

    Figured it out. It was a mapping issue.
