How to add XBOX Game Pass PC Games?

Recommended Posts

With the new XBOX Game Pass Ultimate account, you can install certain Game Pass titles on a PC as well as the XBOX -- is there any way to add them to LB yet? I may be missing something obvious but I can't seem to find a way to locate them on my PC and then point LB at them. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

I would also like to know this.  Might currently be a challenge with the way Game Pass is designed.  I don't think we have full control over the .exe files, but hopefully someone is able to figure it out.

The .exe are stored here, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. However due to there nature they can not be simply dragged and dropped to Launchbox like other .exe's. There is a work around however, if you right click them and choose create shortcut it will say it cant create a shortcut here and do you want to put it on the desktop? So do that, you could just make a folder called Windows Games or something and just drop in all the shortcuts you want to create and drag and drop that folder to Launchbox to import all the games you created shortcuts for.

Sorry my mistake, you need to access the folder via command prompt first.

shell:AppsFolder
