    Steam and Microsoft Store (Play together?)


    Recently I was under the impression that Gears of War 5 was only going to be available on PC (if and only if) you purchased it on the Microsoft store. Today I logged into steam (8/19/10) and realized Gears of War 5 was available for pre-order on the Steam Store. This caused great panic because I had already purchased it on the Microsoft Store. When it comes to matchmaking/co-op play, does it seem like Microsoft Store purchasers and Steam Store purchasers are going to be able to play the game together?



    In short:

    -Can Gears of War 5 players who purchased the game on Microsoft store expect to play with their friends who purchased the game on Steam?

    Example: John has Gears of War 5 on Microsoft Store and Bill has Gears of War 5 on Steam...can these excellently named gentlemen play together online?

    :)

  3. Unwanted search bar on Microsoft Edge and Steam Browser

    Hi Noah,

    Thank you for posting in Community, we understand your concern and we will try our best to help you resolve the issue.

    I would suggest that you clear the data of Edge and check if the issue persist. To do so follow the steps below:

    • Navigate to the location:
    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbw

    • Delete everything in this folder.
    • Restart Microsoft Edge and check.
    With respect to issue that you are facing with Steam I would suggest that you contact the developer as we do not support third part application.

    Hope this information helps.

    Steam

    Hi Sam,

    There are several reasons why you are unable to play the game that you installed using the Steam Client. It is possible that the app is corrupted or the permission settings are not enabled on your PC. To resolve your concern, we suggest that you reset the
    app.

    This process can help restore corrupted game installation files. Here's how:

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and then click the Settings icon.
    • Select System, and then select Apps & features.
    • Find the game, and then click on Advanced options.
    • Click Reset.
    • Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    You may visit this
    link
    for the instructions on how to enable app permissions on your PC.

    Make sure that you are using an administrator account to launch the app. If you are still experiencing the same issue, remove the
    ClientRegistry.blob file by following the steps below:

    • Close the Steam Client and go to the Steam root folder or C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam.
    • Look for the ClientRegistry.blob file.
    • Make a copy of the file and change it to a different file name. (for example, copy.ClientRegistry.blog)
    • Delete the original file.
    • Launch the Steam Client and run your game again.

    If the issue persists, you may relocate the Steam Client by performing the steps below:

    • Close the Steam Client app and go to the Steam installation folder.
    • Browse for the installation files that you would like to move.
    • Delete all of the files inside that folder except the SteamApps & Userdata and Steam.exe.
    • You may cut and paste the whole Steam installation folder to a default storage location on your PC.
    • Launch the app again and make sure to log in using your account.

    After signing in, you'll need to change the default installation path for the games that you will install in the future. Here's how:

    • Launch the Steam Client and go to the Settings
      menu.Select Steam Library Folders from the
      Downloads tab.
    • You may create a new path by selecting Add Library Folder. All future installations will go directly to the newly created path.
    • Right-click on the newly created path and make sure that it is set to default.

    If you are still unable to play your games using the Steam Client, we recommend that you contact
    Steam Support directly for additional solutions in fixing the app and its components.

    Should you have any other queries, you can contact us anytime.
