    Home button does absolutely nothing.


    I have tested the issue on multiple controllers and it is all the same. The only time the home button works is when turning the console on. I can't snap anything, take screenshots/record, and I can't even turn off the console/controller. Is this a bug or
    is something just wrong with my Xbox in particular?

    :)

  2. Xbox home button does nothing

    Double tapping the home button does nothing just causes the screen to dim. There is no side window that pops up with options. I can't even get into the settings to do a restart or anything. I didn't have this problem until I downloaded Forza 6 from the
    store this am. What is going on with this mess.

    Power cycle the console by holding down the power button for 10 seconds or until the console turns off.

    Restart the console and see if that fixes the issue.
     
  4. Home button does absolutely nothing.

    The same thing has happened to me. I have tried my controller and the Xbox One Smart Glass app, but the home button does nothing. I have another Xbox One console and it has happened to that one as well. Nothing related to the home screen functions once a
    game is started, so I have to turn my Xbox off and on every time I want to switch games or apps.

    Add Money button does absolutely nothing

    Hey there David,

    Sorry to hear you have been running into these problems. We have not had any other reports of this being an issue so let's try some other options. I would advise you try to delete browsing history & cookies on your browser and then giving it another try.
    If still not working then go ahead and try to do this with a different device to see if this makes any difference.

    Give this a try and let us know of any changes. Thank you.

    Xbox home button does nothing

    If you do a factory reset you can do it so it doesn’t delete your games and apps so no worries there.

    Have you checked to see if your controller needs an update?

    Go to settings, devices and accessories and check to see if there is an update available.

    Double tap on home button does nothing

    Hey there RyanMc360!

    Do you have a USB cable you can plug into your controller to see if the issue occurs while wired? Make sure your controller is fully up to date, as well. A mistake some people make is pressing the button either too fast or too slow, if you can, try varying
    the speed of tapping the button to see if there's any change with that.
