Windows 10 ver 2004 issue

Recommended Posts

Ever since i upgraded to Win 10 ver 2020 I'm getting this.  "you'll need a new app to open this ms-gaming overlay" pop up window when loading SIM. .I just ignore it but it keeps popping up if i select a ant menus etc. Just annoying.

Do you have the XBox, (or is it Playstation?) 'app' enabled. I still can't figure out why that is relevant to a PC


What is the answer to life the universe and everything? An 'app'.

Or just go into the Settings app and turn it off with a simple switch? 

@Ron Attwood Microsoft uses Xbox branding for gaming on PC as well nowadays. Their full on Xbox app is basically a game launcher comparable to Steam. They also use the same branding for their ingame overlay which allows for some relatively neat stuff without having to install another overlay. Which is all not very relevant if you never use it of course, but it is just Microsoft trying to up their game in the gaming space and providing functionality right out of the box.
