    How to access games once downloaded from the Store


    Hello forum members.

    I've searched the tutorial section of this forum yet I'm still unable to find this simple answer; How do I access a game after downloading from the Store. The Store site states I've downloaded a game although the games folder on my computer is empty.

    I know the answer to this problem will be a simple one.

    This is quite frustrating....please any help is much appreciated.

    To Make it Appear You Have To :

    1- At The Start Screen Press The Browse Apps Button

    2- Then Search For Your App/Game And Right Click on it And Press Pin To Start
