The latest update from Microsoft will introduce changes to Xbox Game Pass on PC.
Microsoft plans to roll out an update that allows users to install a game from Xbox Game Pass or Microsoft Store to any file of their choice, allowing you to move files and access those same files for modification.
According to the report, this is a planned update that is currently being tested internally so there is no date yet when we can expect a full release.
But when rolled out this should fix several issues that many users have had with Xbox Game Pass for PC because of the above restrictions.
Currently, you cannot have full control over game downloads, which prevented users from moving or backing up existing files.

This is an amazing feature, not only for your peace of mind but also to continue your progress on different devices that have your account connected.
