  1. Wrong Game Purchased


    I recently bought the game Ori and the Blind Forest as a digital download code from best buy with the intent of playing it on my PC. I had looked it up and it was listed as a Windows game, but when I tried to redeem the code it gave me the Xbox version, which I cannot play. Is there something I can do as to exchange the game I got for the Windows version?

    :)

  3. Purchased game on wrong account

    Hey all. So I bought a game off the Microsoft store and I accidentally bought it under my secondary account that isn't linked to my computer. Now it won't let me install the game and is only giving me the option to re-purchase. I went through the steps of
    changing my primary email to the one I purchased it under, but still no luck. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    To install a game on you need to make sure that you sign in on your computer using the Microsoft account that you use to purchased the game. To install a game on Windows 10, you may follow the steps below:

    • On the Start screen, select the Store icon.
    • In the Store, select Games from the menu.
