    i'm getting notifications on my PC when my friend earns an achievement on his xbox despite...


    a few weeks ago, my friend signed in to his xbox account on my computer, to buy something from the store since he wasn't at home to do it. i made sure he signed out, and then i signed myself back into the app.

    the past few days, however, when he gets an achievement in a game, i get the notification on my computer. he is definitely not signed in anywhere on my computer, at all. it's only my account, and i have verified it is him earning the achievement on his account,
    being that it shows up in the xbox apps activity feed. except when i earn an achievement myself, i get no notification when previously, i did.

    to try and suss the issue out, i signed out of the xbox app, the microsoft store app, and i signed myself out of my actual computer account entirely, switching to just a local account.

    then signed myself back in on all of them, and yet the issue persists. how can i just flush all account information from my computer to eradicate this issue entirely?

    :)

    Not earning achievements on my PC.

    When you log onto your Xbox Console, look at your profile, they may have registered and you just aren't getting notification on the PC. Happened to me with Minecraft.
    Nope. I'm not getting them at all when I play on PC. Only Xbox play gets counted toward my achievements. Achievements do not progress or get earned when I play on PC.

    My achievements won't unlock all of a sudden.

    I'm getting achievements but no notifications of any sort, it doesn't notify me when I get an achievement or when friends come on or even when I get messages or invites all of a sudden I just have messages show up with no notification

    Xbox 360 no longer adds my Xbox One gamerscore to the total - please help

    UPDATE:

    Just wanted to let people know that getting another achievement on Xbox One resolved the issue. I earned a simple achievement from Xbox Music and despite being 0GS, it updated my 360 score to what it should be.

    Thanks so much for the help guys, nice to know people are here to help when needed. :)

    Not earning achievements on my PC.

    When I play any of my Play Anywhere games, like State of Decay, on my PC, I do not earn any achievements. When I play them on my Xbox One, I earn them as normal but do not get credit for any play that I did on my PC. Basically meaning if I met the
    requirements during PC play, I have to redo all that play to earn the achievement, even though the game has saved my progress from the PC over to the Xbox. I also do not earn achievements on PC only games, like Solitaire. I am signed into the Xbox app on my
    PC and start the games from the app. Any idea how to resolve this issue?
    I found this post from 2016 that perfectly describes the issue that I am having. I don't know how this could not have been fixed by now...
