  1. Can I download Microsoft store games from a different account


    So I have my windows 10 machine signed onto my Microsoft account and I’ve downloaded all my apps from the Microsoft store but then on my Xbox it’s signed into a different account and has forza horizon 4 purchased on it so is there a way to download forza horizon 4 on a different account on my pc my pc can run it and meets the requirements but the account it’s setup on isn’t the account I purchase the game on so I have to create another pc profile and download it on that profile or is there a different way I do not want to transfer the game to a different account

    :)

    App store and Microsoft account


    Thank you for the advice

    I see what you mean about the password but i think its a backward step to compromise my Microsoft password to to use the app store

    Cannot download games from Microsoft store on my account but can from other accounts

    I have been trying to download games through the microsoft store on my laptop, one of which i already own, but they just keep erroring. I have been through many of the suggestions given previously but the problem seems to be with the account rather than
    the store or the laptop. I think this because if i log in to a different microsoft account i can doenload games. The problem is the game i want to download is ARK, which i already own on that account so i cant just use a different account as it costs £45!
    I tried linking the accounts under a family but then it just stopped letting me download anymore games in the second account.

    any help will be appreciated

    not able to download games from store

    Hi,

    There are several possible reasons as to why you're encountering issues with downloading games from the Windows Store. Here's a list of the common factors:

    • Your account may be restricted from downloading games that are inappropriate for your age.
    • Games you're trying to download are not available in your current region.
    • Corrupted app data
    • An outdated Windows 10 OS

    For us to determine the root cause of this issue, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • Are you using an adult or a child account?
    • Is the Microsoft account you're using in the Windows Store app the same as your Windows 10 user account?
    • Are you using an administrator user account?

    In the meantime, we suggest running the Windows apps troubleshooter provided on this

    link
    . This can help resolve issues with downloading and installing games from the Windows Store.
