  1. How do I get rid of this account


    This is not what I wanted, out of the blue my little brother comes into the room and starts clicking away, I get told you need Windows Live for fallout 3 on windows 10, I get it and was not sure or not to make an account, little do I know when I go to the
    toilet, god knows why nobody was watching him, goes into my room and starts clicking buttons and then he makes an account, never did I want this since you don't need one to just play fallout... so now I'm stuck with a bloody account to look after, that I'll
    never use, so I can keep my email safe, I've looked everywhere for a delete account section but there isn't one, is there someway I can't delete this account without actually deleting my email, that email has alot of stuff linked to it, as well as alot of
    work, not many emails but alot is hooked to it.

    :)

    How do I get rid of this thing?

    This Mixer thing is always on my dashboard and it's annoying. Just another tab that gets in the way when I'm trying to get somewhere else. I have no interest in it and have no use for it. So why is it forced on me? There used to be recent new feature to
    remove tabs you don't want to be visible but it seems to be gone as well. What gives? Why are these good things going away and these annoying things remaining? Makes no sense to me.

    Anyway, how do I get rid of this thing already? Where is the go away and never come back button? The off switch? Do you need a Kinect to tell it to go away?

  3. How do I get rid of this update?

    Hey there.

    Unfortunately, there's no way to back to the old UI now. Yes, the gestures are gone, but overall the system UI functions much quicker with the new update.

    Some tips: To access your pins quickly, hit the right trigger (RT) while on the home screen - it will jump directly to the pins. The four most recently used apps are still there, right under the current app/game - they are just listed vertically with more
    information instead of the small icons listed horizontally.

    Hope this helps with the functions you feel are missing from the new UI - with the exception of gesture controls they are still there, they just look different or are in a different spot, but they are just as quick (or in some cases even quicker!) to access
    than the old system.

    How do I get rid of this update?

    Actually, I hated the new update at first, but once you get used to it, it becomes easier: I just wish there was a way to increase the time the XBOX 1 controller stays "ON" and lit, so that you don't have to manually reactivate it every 5-7 minutes.

    As far as gestures: I know that some people like this, but I can give you a few reasons why they were bad:

    1. ANYONE who was in front of the Kinect sensor could make the machine do what they wanted, instead of me, and could just YELL "Xbox Go Home" as loud as they could, and mess with the experience - and if they moved their hands just right, BOOM - I have to
    restart, pause, whatever I am doing.....

    2. Having Cerebral Palsy, I prefer the removal of the gestures, because my hands sometimes end up right in the sight of the sensor, and I could pause or rewind the action BY ACCIDENT - being spastic means sometimes bo9dy movements are unintentional. People
    who have problems like this probably DO like that, because gestures can mess them up.

    3. When I play online with a friend, sometimes I have to make sure that I have my Mute my Kinect Sensor, because when I private chat with the Kinect Mic On, I can Say "Xbox, GO HOME" Or something else, and my friends Xbox does it - Which is unintentional
    - so I will say <hey Friend's Name> Have your Machine go to the home screen" and HE will do it - sometimes the Kinect can mess up things, but as stated Theroy Of Game Stated, all of the functions are there, just not the gestures - Which is a godsend for some
    of us that don't like, or do not choose to use them - The most annoying one is when you press a flat hand in the air and it STOPS everything dead: Lucky for me, I know my voice commands :D
