Im playing a game x.box in windows 8 by Microsoft on line.
I have some connections problems and I'm thinking to uninstall the game and install it again.
The problem is I cannot find it to uninstall it.
Usually I go to the control panel.
But I cannot find it.
Thanks in advance. smile wave

Is there a tile for the game on your Start screen? If there is, just right click it and select uninstall... If you're using touch, just tap and hold until the menu comes up on the bottom of the screen.

If there is no tile, just find the game in your Apps. Go to the Start screen and simply start typing the name of the game.

Is that what it says when you right click it?

So, what happened? Did it work?

Oops! Just saw your edit... was it in the right click?

Ah, you're right, Jenny. I read that she couldn't find the game in Control Panel. I find the very easiest way to get to Control Panel - plus a ton of other handy things - is to right click in the very bottom of the lower left corner. That brings up everything from Control Panel to Device Manager to Command Prompt to Run and everything else in between.

Interesting - I've always used the Windows Logo Key+X combo to get to Control Panel.

Yup, Windows+X gets the same context menu as the right click in the lower left corner. If I don't feel like going to the keyboard, I just use the right click. Just lazy sometimes!

I just downloaded it and it wouldn't let me play either and said connection problems, but also said it could not verify the user. So I started the Games app and had to sign in to my X-Box Live account first. Then the game would play. I just use my sign-in username and password for the Microsoft Live account and it took me to my X-Box Live account.
