You’ll notice the first time you use the Game Bar’s FPS counter it’ll say you have to request access to make it happen. All you’ll have to do here is click the FPS button, enable access, and then restart your PC. If everything was done correctly, you’ll be able to see your FPS the next time you fire up Starfield or any other game through the Xbox app.

Knowing your FPS is a good way to gauge whether your PC is up to the task of running a game that’s demanding. If you’re seeing a lower than expected number, it might be time to lower some settings or even upgrade your PC. When it comes to Starfield, it might be a combination of both.
