    How to find my list of games.


    I am new to Windows 8 and 8.1, but I am not new to xbox games.

    One thing which confuses me...

    I have downloaded a few xbox games from the Windows Store, but how exactly do I find them. I will give an example:
    I have downloaded Jetpack Joyride and Glacier Blast. Because I've played Jetpack Joyride, it appears in the "home" section of my Games place. However, I cannot for the life of me find Glacier Blast.

    My one question:
    Where is there a list of my games I have for Windows????

    If these are apps downloaded from the store, they have not yet been pinned to your start menu. Find the arrow pointing down at the bottom of the start menu, and it will pull up all your apps, listed by date, category, or whatever. You can also find them by searching. Right-click them and pin them to the start menu for quick access.

    So as I understand it, this is a flaw in Windows 8?

    On Windows Phone, I go to the "Games" hub and I see the list of games I own.
    On Xbox 360 & Xbox One, I slide to "Games" hit "My Games" and there is a list of games I own.

    But there is no list like this on Windows 8? That's just daft.

    It isn't a flaw as I see it. Some people don't want all their apps pinned to the start menu. There also is no games app. You should be able to simply type the name of what you have just installed, right click it, and pin it to start if need be. Or just search for it every time. Much like the picture below:

Sorry bad title, hard to explain the issue. I'll try to do better now. On my Apps list is the installed apps. As expected. But many of the installed apps include more than just the app in the list. An example, I have installed RoboForm on the Apps List is a list of several RoboForm icons. The...
Hi All - I was under the impression that the Games App on my Windows 8 Pro desktop and on my Surface would work in a similar fashion to my windows 8 phone's game app. Whereas all games are located and tracked in the app. Unless I'm missing something the Games App in Windows 8 only tracks and...
I am completely new to Windows 8 since I installed it today, and when I went into the X-Box games app, I couldn´t see any of my purchased games from GFWL, what gives? It would only seem logical or doesn´t it?
