    How to?

    I've upgraded to Windows 8.1 with no problems. However, when I first installed 8.0 Pro 64, I went into "Games" and unknowingly or accidentally signed into Xbox. I don't have Xbox. How do I get out of that classification and into PC? This is no "biggy," but if someone has the time to tell me "how," I would appreciate it.

    I might mention that I had a 3D effect in one older program that was aggravating. I undated the driver for my GeForce 660 Ti and that solved it.

    Not sure exactly what you mean by "getting back into PC"? Could you please explain?

    You get the Xbox sign in if you are using a MS account. All this does is give you access to more of the games through your computer (you do not need an Xbox, I do not have one either but do use this feature). This also save your games so you have a running tally of how you are doing, plus many of the card games have a daily challenge feature that you might need to be signed into to access)

    Thanks. I thought I needed to change from Xbox to PC in order to download a PC format game.

    No need for that at all. This is just the format MS is using for the Store games. Perhaps they would like you to purchase an Xbox, but there is no need at all. Glad we were able to clear that up.

    The Xbox brand is the common brand used by Microsoft for gaming. You find it not only on the Xbox devices, but also on Windows Phone and Windows 8 / 8.1.
