    How do I edit my avatar in Windows 8.1


    Okay, so I have been surfing the internet and it is said you can change your Microsoft Games avatar through the Games app....They said it works in 8 and 8.1. Yet I have not found the button "Edit Avatar" in the Games app.
    Here is a screenshot of where I was told I would be-

    Please could I be informed on how to change my avatar, and my picture!

    Maybe from your XboxLive account or your PC user account icon; not sure but check it out.

    I've tried everything...the website is always directing me back to the Games app. It is getting annoying

    Sorry, I was of the impression that your MC Account icon was used across all Apps.

    It's not you, its Microsoft. I'm just going to take a guess it only works on Windows 8, and not 8.1...because I have done research and users on 8 are able to in videos...just as I seen a lot of post on the Microsoft, and Xbox website that 8.1 users can't. I Just got to wait

    Also I thought that too...I would also think Microsoft would allow you to edit your avatar in 8.1...but it hasn't been implemented for some reason.
