    I am unable to start the PC software configuration on my Windows 10 for Xbox 360. The Xbox is giving a key that must be entered during the PC setup, but I am not even able to start this process on my pc. Where do I go to find the solution? Also, i cannot
    access any of my amazon prime items after trying to use explorer (you don't even allow us to download or use chrome!? i hate and never use explorer.) it pulls up the video cover page and then gives a message stating microsoft does not allow playing of streaming
    media? it's my console so i can't understand why you are exercising that kind of control. i already have 3 xboxes in this house, i am not buying another just to get back functionality on a microsoft item which microsoft has broken apps and controls for on
    their end. it has the latest update.

    :)

    yes there is the player, but that is not what it is looking for. it wants the now removed center which was stupid to remove in my opinion. the amazon app is now a broken app as well. so none of my computers can 'find' my console, which is connected to
    the internet. i can search the internet, use 'bing' which kinda sucks but cannot actually DO anything such as watch amazon or itunes videos.

    Hi Elizabeth

    There is another recent post here in the forums with a possible solution to your issue

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...ws-10-pc/9a22090e-dd4b-429e-8737-d943a3317f8d

    If you follow the steps in the reply by
    @ArminaterX
    It can be done without the old Media Centre Version of windows by the looks.

    Please try and let us know how you get on and if you run into any further issues.

    Also regards your comments on the Chrome Browser. Chrome is a Google (Alphabet Inc) owned product and Google have not made apps available for Xbox consoles as yet. There are other browsers available for the Xbox one, but I believe the Xbox 360 still only
    has Microsoft Edge, which honestly I find faster and much more secure than Chrome once you get to used to the differences between the two. Edge also has a built in 'Smart Screen' safety feature, keeping you safe from malware and malicious websites, without
    having to add extra extensions.

    Not many apps are made now for the 360 with many players now using Xbox One. The softwares on the 360 are far more limited than on the more recent consoles am afraid. You can still use Googles' website and search engine from inside another browser however,
    it doesnt not need to be the Chrome to use Google websites.

    For Amazon Prime Video access, There is a standalone app for 360 for this, Not even the Xbox One browser will allow you to play your prime content from a console broswer sadly.. more on the Amazon Instant Video all for Xbox 360 is here

    Amazon Instant Video for Xbox 360

    I use my 360 in my bedroom for Netflix and Amazon Prime, last I checked 2 weeks ago, the Amazon Instant Video App was still working on my 360 without issue and I am able to access all my prime content.

    Good luck in getting the sharing up and running!!

    Hi,

    Do you have the media player app installed on the pc and xbox 360 as this is required to link the both together

    Xbox 360 SmartGlass App gone from Windows Store?

    try this one. found it by searching "xbox 360 smart glass" with bing! :) also searching for this on my Windows Phone 10 gives me the same link. searching it using the Store app on my Windows 10 PC gives me no results.

    this linked posted by Mr Mascot says "available on PC". the one i linked to says for "mobile devices" and shows a tablet and phone.
