    Why can't Xbox app on PC let me change my download location?


    I wanted to download Halo The Master Chief Collection to my pc but for some stupid reason when I changed my download location to my external hard drive Xbox app thought it'll be so funny to switch it back to my internal hard drive "which I can't install Halo MCC on due to low storage space" I tried looking up solutions online but nothing helped so I thought posting here would help!

    :)

    First, may I know if your drive is already formatted as NTFS?

    Please double check this and let me know:
    Open file explorer > my computer > Right-click on the drive > properties

    Xbox app failing to download apps

    Alright hey and also how do I change where the Xbox app downloads games because it is currently glitched and won't let me change it. It's set to C:\PerfLogs and it won't let me change it. I don't know why it's set to that.

    Address error when purchasing xbox games or DLC on windows

    Oh wow, Okay. I figured it out. My PCs region was changed to New Zealand somehow. So that's why it was screwed up on the game and not xbox one. This is also why my game on PC couldn't verify that I am who I am I am guessing so it wouldn't allow me to download
    the DLC on PC and why it did allow me to download it on Xbox One.

    Why my region changed. Literally not a clue.

    Xbox Game Pass Games Asking To Install On Devices?

    I understand the problem now, however whenever I try to install the new xbox pc app it says my pc is "Not quite ready" for it to be downloaded, I checked my windows and its all up to date. so I have no idea why I can't install that.

    I am now considering it to be impossible to play xbox games on pc for me anymore.
