    Surface Pro 2 - Xbox games under different account


    I just purchased a Surface Pro 2. I already have an XBox 360 that uses a family MS account for access. My new Surface Pro 2 uses my personal MS account. I want to use this family account as my Xbox games account, but Windows will only allow me to use the
    useless Xbox account associated with my personal MS account. How can I use a different Xbox account on my Surface?

    :)

    Transferring purchases between accounts?

    I have an Xbox live account with some credit on it. I would like to purchase some windows 10 apps but I'd like to purchase them on my surface pro 3, but my outlook account on my surface pro 3 is different. Can I transfer credit between my accounts or make
    a purchase on my Xbox account and access the app on my surface pro 3 account? Thanks

    Not loading at all on Surface Pro 3

    I came here to post something very similar. The same thing you described happens to me, but it ONLY happens if I open it from a pin on the Start screen. If I open Microsoft Bingo from the All Apps list it loads just fine. If I remove the pin and add it
    back it does the same thing.

    I've tried a tons of different methods to fix this (obviously including the recommended steps) all to no avail. I did find that it seems to only happen under my user account on the surface not any other, indicating that the issue most likely lies in one
    of three places:

    -My specific Microsoft Account or user account

    -In HKEY_CURRENT_USER in the registry

    -In %userprofile% under my account

    Did you upgrade to the Surface Pro 3 from a different computer or surface? I upgraded from a Surface Pro (first generation) to a Surface Pro 3 and noticed this right away after upgrading.

    Edit: I have no problems with any other apps on my Surface, including other Microsoft Studios games.

    How do I add entire genre to now playing in Xbox Music?

    I've just realised I misread the last part of your post, I thought this was Windows Phone and that the difference between our experiences was because I am running the WP8.1 Preview.

    I will need to find a way to check this on Windows 8 (Surface) as apparently there seems to be a difference. Which version of Windows 8 are you running? Windows 8 Pro or RT? (ie, is it a Surface RT, Surface Pro, Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2?) Have you updated
    to Windows 8.1 Update 1? If not, you can do this as a free update via the Windows Store.

    If you have an available update, you should do that and check in Xbox Music again to see if this feature is enabled.

    xbox one can't access files on a network ???

    While it doesn't sound like it is available at launch, I would bet it comes in the future. That said, its honestly a lot easier to use the PlayTo function on your Surface or Windows PC to send the video to your Xbox. Additionally, if you have a Surface Pro,
    Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 you can use Maracas with the Xbox. I just upgraded to the Surface 2 and the miscast support is awesome (using a Netters Push2TV, waiting for my Xbox One today...).

    To use maracas, pull up charms, then devices then display. You may need to set up the One to use it, but once you do it is that easy.
