Microsoft Adds Different Layouts on Xbox Homepage as New Windows 11 Update Causes Performance Issues While Gaming
Microsoft has announced that it will be bringing a new experience to Xbox Home.
Microsoft is revamping the Xbox console’s homepage with changes to UI, new layout, and more. In a new post for Xbox Insiders, the company has laid out a slate of changes it has made for the new Home experience.
The company used Xbox Insiders’ feedback to experiment and introduce changes to the console’s UI. The newest change will be additional customization capabilities, as Xbox says fans want to see more of their stuff such as Pins, games, and backgrounds. For now, there is nothing new in regard to backgrounds. However, the company has stated that it will share more details soon.
New layouts will make stuff easier to access as well. With customized games and groups, including Pins, which were introduced recently, this makes things even more accessible for users.
Users can also add top groups to Home and see them on the homepage itself when scrolled down for quicker access to games and apps. Users can also add up to ten games to Home for easy access.
New Windows 11 Version 22H2 may cause gaming issues
In Version 22H2 of Windows 11, users may experience lower than expected performance in some games.
Microsoft says that some games and apps might experience stuttering with this version of the operating system. “These affected games and apps are inadvertently enabling GPU performance debugging features not meant to be used by consumers,” the company explained.
This is why the company has applied a compatibility hold on devices affected by this issue.
Workaround for the issue
If you are already on Windows 11 Version 22H2, then Microsoft suggests that this issue can be worked around by installing the latest version available for your games and gaming related apps.
The company has said that it’s working on a resolution and will provide an update with an upcoming release. Microsoft has also warned against manually upgrading using the Update Now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue is fixed.
