If you are still having the issue you could try to clear the user data of Streamlabs OBS & see if that could resolve the issue. Do keep in mind by doing so you are deleting user data and you need to login, redo your settings and potentially re-adjust your scenes & collections depending on the cloud recovery.

  1. Make sure Streamlabs OBS is closed and not running in the background in task manager.

  2. Copy: " %appdata% " (without quotes) then Press the Windows Key on your keyboard, Press CTRL + V then Press Enter.
    • This will put you into your roaming folder, scroll down until you see " slobs-client "

  3. Delete the entire " slobs-client " folder.
    • This will delete your cache and all current scenes and settings.
    • If you wish, rename it to " _slobs-client " instead, to have a backup.

  4. Restart SLOBS as Administrator when launching.
    • Redo the any settings that were not recovered via cloud recovery.
