    Can't select proper drive for Game download on Microsoft store.


    I am currently trying to install Forza Horizon 4 on my PC. I own the game, and when I click the install button it prompts me to choose which drive I would like to install the game on. Every time I try and choose the drive I want and hit install, the button goes grey for a second then comes back blue as if I never selected it. I can however get the game to install by clicking the 3 dots on the side of it, clicking install on my devices, and then choosing my computer. Only issues is I do not get any prompt on where to install the game, so it automatically goes to my C drive which doesn't have enough room so it will fail shortly after starting the install. How can I select my drive that actually has space on it so I can get this game as well as others installed?

    :)

  2. Install Microsoft Store Game In Specific Folder

    Hi,

    I understand that you want to organize your Windows 10 storage location. However, the feature you're looking for is currently not possible. We suggest sending feedback to Microsoft using Feedback Hub app. You can visit this
    article to know more details about it.

    Moreover, you could always choose a preferred location from the Store settings, or move installed content to a different drive. In case you have the OS installed on an SSD and have a dedicated drive for games, the feature will make it more convenient to
    download games to a dedicated drive before initiating the download.

    You can follow the steps below on how to install Windows Store apps on a separate drive:

    1. Open Settings.
    2. Click on System.
    3. Click on Storage.
    4. Under "Save locations," and on "New apps will save to," select the new drive location.

    Once you completed the steps, new apps you download from the Windows Store will now install automatically in the new location.

    If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

  3. Where are my downloaded Games?

    Hi Brandon,

    Games downloaded from the Microsoft Store website or through the Windows Store app are added in the Xbox app's Game list. To access this, kindly perform the following steps:

    • Select the Start button, then select Xbox.
    • Sign in using the Microsoft account you've used to download the game.
    • Select My games. Games you have on that device will appear there.

    If you can't see the game, it may be because the game was not automatically added on your Game list. To add it, proceed with the steps below:

    • Select the Start button, then select Xbox.
    • Sign in using the Microsoft account you've used to download the game.
    • Select My games.
    • Select Add a game from your PC.
    • You'll see a scrollable list of all Win32 games and programs that have
      Start
      menu shortcuts. From the list, find Solitaire HD and add it to your
      My games menu so you can quickly browse for and launch the game.
    • Once you've selected your choices, select Add selected games at the bottom of the pop-up window.

    Don't forget to notify us with the results. We'd be glad to further assist you.

    Can't select proper drive for Game download on Microsoft store.

    Microsoft Store Games

    I downloaded several pc games from my xbox game pass which I no longer have.

    I decided to uninstall them, and I did, but didn-t see any change on my drive memory capacity, which means, they were not removed at all. I can-t find them anymore on the microsoft store library nor on my pc app list though.

    Doing some research, I found the hidden microsoft store apps folder, and realized the games are still there. How can I safely remove them, without just deleting the folders? And why didn-t they get uninstalled when I did so through the add or remove programs
    feature?
