  1. Where to should I store game files from sites like Itch.io that come without installers?


    I like downloading indie games from Itch.io, but I don't know where to save them since they have no installers. I don't want to save them on my desktop because my desktop is synced with OneDrive, so the game files would take up a large chunk of my 5GB OneDrive storage.

    :)

    unable to re install game error code 0x80070426

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    Please answer these questions to assist you better.

    • How exactly are you downloading game eg Store or browser?
    • Which game are you trying to download?
    • Are you able to install other games and apps?

    I suggest you to install the game software in Compatibility mode by following the steps below and check if the issue is resolved.

    Before installing the game in compatibility mode, I suggest you to delete all the game related files present in the system and proceed with the steps below.

    Step 1: Compatibility mode runs the program in the current version of Windows using the settings from previous version of Windows.

    • Locate and right-click on the game setup file on your PC and click on
      Properties.
    • Click on the compatibility tab, check the box
      Run this program in compatibility mode for
      , select Windows 10 operating system from the drop down menu and proceed with the installation. Once this is done,
      restart the computer for the effective changes to take place.

    Step 2: Also refer the link below.

  3. Trying to install games from Microsoft Store on Windows 10

    Thanks for the suggestions. I've tried each of these, with no results. I would also like to note that on the Microsoft Store app, in my library, the game is listed, however, no option to install it is given.

    I can't reinstall my previously installed games!!!

    Hi Fahd,

    It appears that you're having an issue installing your previous games after reinstalling Windows 10. We would like to know if it is only happening when you're installing your games or is it also happening when you're installing an app from Microsoft Store.

    Meanwhile, we suggest clearing Windows Store's cache by performing these steps:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type wsreset.exe then hit Enter.
    • Restart your computer.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
