    Xbox App not changing download location

    Hi there Fuzzy welcome to the community forum! Christopher here, an Xbox fan just like you and has been on Xbox for years already. I would really love to make your day by helping you out. This might be an issue with the app itself! I suggest uninstalling the app completely! Everytime that it tried to give me a hard time I do this and it works wonders! Here are the steps!

    This doesn't apply to me...I haven't changed my location and the app was working fine before downloading the update!

    Can't pre-install Gears 5 with Xbox (Beta) app using Ultimate Game Pass

    I finally got mine to start downloading. To change the download drive location go to Profile in the top right corner of the Xbox beta app, then click on settings. There you can change the download drive. What was weird was even after I did that it still
    wouldn't download using the app. So I went back to the Microsoft store app uninstalled it and started the download again from there and it worked. Hope this helps someone else out.

    Xbox App Download Location

    I need to know the location too as when I tried downloading both Forza and Football Manager earlier they both Error'd out and even though the app says that they are not installed my storage space that is left says otherwise.
    Going to keep an eye on this as it is proper shoddy how you can't just install it into a normal folder from older forum posts that I have seen
