    Unable to play "Installed" games from GamePass PC ( I'm Lost)


    Hello, I don't know what to do anymore. Wall of text incoming.

    I was playing The Outer Worlds on PC with GamePass. After a few days I wanted to change some ini files in the game to disable certain options that aren't currently present in the game to make it run smoother. To change these ini files I had to get to the
    WindowsApp folder which was hidden. Getting into the Outer Worlds folder was easy enough except when I tried to edit a ini file it said I wasn't an administrator which I found odd and of course I wasn't the only one. So I was changing security permissions
    inside the folder which for some reason didn't work...SO I decided with my big boy brain to change the security permissions of the WindowsApps folder itself. I believe this is where I went wrong. I have tried multiple "fixes" and "workarounds" to fix my mistake,
    even going to try a system restore, BUT an error popped up saying the system restore could not be completed several times. Trying to look in forums for fix after fix of problem after problem. I narrowed it down to where at least when the Xbox Beta App wants
    to work correctly which at the time i'm writing this post it isn't even after reinstalling it for the fourth or fifth time I've lost count, certain games I have recently played or installed and decided I wasn't going to play and then chose to uninstall will
    not reinstall from the app or the microsoft store. HOWEVER, I was given false hope when I reset the gaming services app on the store and the store itself. I was able to reinstall The Outer Worlds, actually seeing the progress bar fill normally not super fast
    and giving no indication of being able to be played. But to my final sadness, once again The Outer Worlds that was supposedly installed on my drive had no "Play" button for me and wasn't in my Store library. Thus leading to me dealing with fix after fix for
    3 days which resulted in nothing of note.

    I will provide any error codes or proof when needed if I actually get answers to this post. I know most support forums I go on they will have me go through the standard procedure to make sure I didn't miss anything. I have no problem doing this, believe
    me. Honestly this is not a gigantic issue for me per se, but I would be so relieved if there was something I missed or could actually do that doesn't include formatting my HDD.

    Any and all help from staff and community would be appreciated, I will try to get whatever is asked of me done when I have the time between work and family. Cheers to those that read this and thank you no matter the outcome.

    :)
