  1. Passing microsoft store account to friend so he can try out a game


    Hello, i have a quick and weird question, can i pass my account data to a friend so that he can log in on MS Store with it ? i want him to try the new forza before we both buy it (possible DNS and NAT problems on my side). We had such a problem when we tried to play farming simulator (dont judge me xD).


    Atm i cant connect to forza online play (NAT, fix is on the way) but i want to test if it works on my friends side to make sure we can online play (not even neccesarily coop)


    Problem is i dont want his local account to migrate into my Windows account, that would force A LOT of synchronisation.
    - He cant activate free gamepass (used it + doesnt have a credit card any more)

    - I dont think free demo supports online play (cause it would be stupid if it would) + if it does i think it uses diferrent ports than normal forza

    So can he log into my account ONLY on MS Store or will it force his local acc to go under my MS Log in ?

    :)

    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

  3. Microsoft account purchase information.

    Hi Robert,

    A corrupted game file is one of the possible reasons why you don't see any information with all of your Microsoft games. To help you resolve this concern, we suggest that you follow the steps below:

    Step 1: Sign out your account from the Windows Store. Here is how:

    • Open the Store app.
    • Click/tap on the user icon, and click/tap on Microsoft account that you are currently signed in to the Store with.
    • Click/tap on the Microsoft account again.
    • Click/tap on the Sign out link.

    Step 2: Reset Store cache. Follow the steps below:

    • Press the Win+R keys to open the Run dialog.
    • Type WSReset.exe, and click/tap on OK.

      Note: The WS tool resets the Windows Store without changing account settings or deleting installed apps.
    • The Store and a command prompt will now open without any message. The command prompt will automatically close when the Store cache has been reset.

    Step 3: Sign in your account to the Windows Store.

    • Open the Store app.
    • Click/tap on the user icon, and click/tap on Sign in.

    Should you need further assistance, feel free to post back anytime.

    App store and Microsoft account


    Yes. When you sign in to the Store with a Microsoft account like in step 5 in Option Two of the tutorial below instead of switching to a Microsoft account you will and stay a local account.
