    Games Tile is missing


    Hello windows 8 forum,

    I'm wandering if I can find its folder directory. After I followed similar tutorial with the hope is there but quite disappointed. There no games tile associated with other tiles there. Can you tell me where I can find it? Thank you.

    Hello Botard,

    Double check to see if the Games app is on your Apps screen.

    If so, then you could just "Pin to Start" it.

    If not, then you should be able to reinstall the "Xbox Games" back from "Your apps" in the Store.
    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You're most welcome Botard. I'm glad it was still there in Apps.
