I have been playing my Windows 10 XBox games via the "Xbox Companion" - someone pointed me to the new XBox App (Beta) the other day, which has better store integration etc. But it only sees State of Decay 2 - all the other Windows 10 store games (Age of Empires, Forza Horizon 3 + 4, etc) don't show up... they aren't even listed under "games I own". Anyone know how to fix this? I bought them through the windows store, installed through the store, and they show up and launch fine in the XBox Companion App.

Hi,

Why do you see the need to launch these games via either the companion app or the Xbox App? You can just search for your game via the Windows Search box, and you can pin it to the Start menu from here too.

@Bond007uk: it's just annoying - one of the benefits of these "steam-like" platforms is all the social features (friends list, etc), screenshot, purchase, install, uninstall, etc stuff is in one place. Thankfully GoG galaxy has partial integration across platforms too - but only partial

That's why I was trying to move from the Companion App in the first place - because screenshots and store features are handled elsewhere, whereas I was told the new beta Xbox App would be a proper jack of all trades

I also do the same as well. Whenever I'm using Xbox App with Game Pass, I always set MS games to my pin start window key-button. Its the only way to do this correctly.
