    Latest Xbox App looks for new games in the wrong location


    Since the latest update of the Xbox Windows 10 App (Gamepass/Beta, whatever), any NEW games I download and try to play look in the WRONG location for the game. Games I previously downloaded still work (6 of them) without an issue.

    I have 3 drives in my PC, a small NVMe for boot and apps, then 2 larger SSDs for Game storage. All of the Xbox games are installed on D:, and until the most recent update every game I downloaded and installed worked without a hitch. The ones I downloaded
    before still work, but any new games install fine, but trying to run it is looking to find the game on C:, and I can't get it to look anywhere else.

    I've been through every step in the troubleshooting (reinstall Xbox app, reinstall the game, change storage settings, run several different reset commands in PowerShell, etc, etc). So any new things to try here, registry edits, something so I can play Control
    and Doom Eternal would be great.

    I have screen shots of my settings

    I wondered if it might have something to do with my isp. It's at&t.

    That may be a question best directed to the app's support group. Also, make sure your console region is set correctly.

    wrong location in apps

    Location on the internet is usually determined by where the app or software thinks that IP address is being assigned out at. Your ISP may have a relationship with a larger business that is registered or exists in Cleveland.

    The location might be given by your ISP. I know my location comes up as places that are in different areas that I'm not located in. Do you have your default location set in your Microsoft account? You can set this in the Maps app, in settings change default
    location. I don't know if this will affect you Xbox.

    If your device have not the GPS then your location detecting by network.
