  1. XBOX won't open on my PC "windows cannot access the specified path"


    Hello, I've been having an issue with my PC recently where windows just will not open the XBOX app, this has been since I reset my PC a couple of months back. When I reset my PC I copied almost all of my old files over from the windows.old folder including programfiles and the rest, I put them exactly where they used to be without fail. (I've heard some issues such as this can be caused by a moved programfiles folder) I've tried a few things to fix this issue such as:


    - Moving the install location of apps on my PC to a seperate drive

    - Reinstalling the XBOX app (each thing listed here had XBOX reinstalled for each one)

    - Giving the programfiles folder altered permissions, with windows having the absolute highest possible

    - Giving windows store a full reset

    - purging out the programfiles folder with anything XBOX related being removed

    - running troubleshooters


    If you need relevant specifications of my PC here:

    Windows 10 Pro for workstations

    250GB Samsung 750 Evo SSD

    2TB Seagate Barracuda HDD


    Any help with this issue would be appreciated.

    I really do not want to reset this PC.

    :)

    Microsoft Photos can't access specified device, path or file

    Hello Suraj,

    One of the possible reason why you are getting an error message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item",
    may be due to the corrupted shortcut, if the file needs a permission or
    error if the shortcut or installation is attempting to access a location that is not currently available such as a networked or a removable drive. In order for us to assist you better, we'd like to ask the following:

    • Did you make any changes to your computer before experiencing this issue? If yes, tell us more about it.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you tried so far?
    • Have you checked if you are using the administrator access? If yes, do you have any guess or standard profile on your computer?
    • Which application are you using to access photos? Is it an application that you download from the Microsoft Store?

    Meanwhile, we recommend checking the article about "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file" error when you try to install, update or start a program or file
    on this link. It's applicable to Windows 7, this is to guide us to
    isolate the main issue why you are unable to access the photos on your device.

    We are looking forward to your reply.
