If you received a new Xbox One this Christmas, you should know how to find your favorite games to play. You may have many games on your console, but knowing how to find games on the Xbox One will allow you to enjoy gaming sessions uninterrupted. You should also know a few more things, such as how to organize, install and delete games on the Xbox One.

How to find games on the Xbox One

To find games on the Xbox One, go to the “My Games and Apps” screen to bring up a list of all your games. You can access the “My Games and Apps” screen anytime while using the Xbox. To find games on the Xbox One, follow these steps:

  1. Press the Xbox button on the controller. This will take you to the Xbox Guide menu.
  2. Scroll down to “My Games & Apps” using the left stick.
  3. Press A.
  4. Move to “See all.”
  5. Press A again.

That’s it.

If you want to access the “My Games and Apps” screen from the Xbox Dashboard, then you need to select the My Games and Apps button. This button is on the left below the icon of the last game or app you used. Here you will see all the games and apps installed on your console. To find games, go to the “Games” tab in the menu options on the left side. Here you will get all the games you bought or have access to via services like Xbox Game Pass.

How to install and organize games on Xbox One

Now that you know how to find games on the Xbox One, the next thing you should know is how to install games on the Xbox One. To install games on the Xbox One, go to the “Ready to Install” tab and select the game you want to install. Next, press A. You will now get three options: Install all, Choose what to install or Cancel.

If you select “Install All,” it will install the games and any available add-ons. If you want to control what you install, then select “Choose what to install.” If you haven’t installed add-ons or downloadable content now, you can install it later by going to the “Installed” tab in My Games and Apps. Choose “Cancel” if you changed your mind and don’t want to install any games now.

Now that you know how to find and install games, the next thing that you should know is how to organize Xbox One games. Your Xbox will probably have many games, so organizing them will help you to easily locate and choose the games you want to play. To organize games, first select the “Filter” tab.

Here you will get many options, including sort games, view games and which games to view. You can sort the games in alphabetical order, by date when you got them, or by letter. You can also organize the games by Xbox One games, Xbox 360 games, Xbox One titles and Xbox One X Enhanced titles.

A better way to organize the games would be to sign-up for TrueAchievements using your Xbox Account. This will not only allow you to view all your games, but it will also help you track the games you want. TrueAchievements will also give you more options to sort games, such as by difficulty, genre, release year, rating and more.
