        • Ability to Identify Games Acquired Through Subscriptions Like Game Pass, Games With Gold, or Purchased

          You've got a great library of games, but you can't remember which games were installed through Game Pass, which games were part of your Gold Subscription, or a birthday gift. Let us know how important it is to identify where games came from by voting, and tell us in the comments how you'd like to see this idea work!

          • Uninstall multiple games at once in My Games & Apps

            I'd like to uninstall multiple games at once. So some sort of selection of multiple games and then just go for uninstall them all.

            • Ignore the Word "The" When Sorting Alphabetically

              Some films in the Films and TV app ignore the word "The" when sorting alphabetically. I would like all Films to behave this way. Additionally, this would be useful when sorting your games

              • Option to Receive a Notification Pre-Ordered or Pre-Purchased Content Becomes Available

                The most common example are season passes content: when you own season pass and new DLC comes out from it, you wouldn’t know it’s released unless you follow the news and go to “Ready to install” section yourself to manually install it.

                  • Split the Ready to Install list into "Full Games" and "Demos"

                    Right now, "Ready to install" shows all possible games that are ready to install, including demos. Let's make it a little easier to filter out the Demos, or maybe other types of games. Vote for this idea to show us how much you like it, and use the comments to tell us how you'd like it to work!

                    • Allow Sorting of Games by Digital and Disc-based Games

                      It would be nice to seperate my games into two lists. One of games I need the disk for, and one of games that are downloaded and can be played as is.

                      • Allow Chronological Game Sorting for Series

                        Add ability to sort my games library by chronological order in addition to alphabetical or other filters. (Ex. Tomb Raider games are not in chronological order under alphabetical sorting since they are not numbered and aside from the first reboot title, each games’ title begins with something other than Tomb Raider.)

                        • Option to Receive a Text or Email Notification When a Download Has Finished

                          Have you ever gotten home from a long day, wanted to play your favorite game but turns out you have to wait 2 hours for it to update?! Well this idea is supposed to suppress atleast some of that rage.
                          Simply put you get the option of getting a text message or email when ever an update or download happens.

                          Though not every time obviously but when you choose to download/update something have this be an option below saying something like "Would you like to receive a notification?(this turns into more of a representation)

                          • Option to Filter or Sort for Games You've Played

                            A new menu item in the my games and apps called "Played Games" where we can see all games ever played on the account. There should be a filter to see which games are disc based and backwards compatible (or in other words played on the account but not digitally purchased on the account).
                            -This way instead of remembering, guessing or keeping outside lists we can quickly see which games are backwards compatible on disc.
                            -Maybe we can also directly let the game be installed from played games and then after downloading put the disc in for verification to play.

                                With bandwidth caps in place I had to disable auto updates ( I have over 500 games installed), but if we could have the option to choose which games and apps we want updated that would be gold.

                                • Ignore Copyright and Trademark Symbols in Game Titles When Sorting

                                  At the moment some games with multiple installments like Far Cry look like they're incorrectly sorted because you apparently consider copyright and trademark symbols to be part of the game name.

                                  Please ignore these symbols for sorting.

                                  • Change “Sort by size” to Include Add-On Content Size with Main Game Size

                                    For example, Assassin’s Creed Origins indicates its size is 49 GB when you select “Sort by size”, but if you go to “Manage” menu it turns out its size is actually 72 GB because of all the DLC installed. Sorting also takes only 49 GB into account, so sorting is incorrect for total games sizes.

                                    • Allow Users to Sort the Installation Queue

                                      In the installation queue on the Xbox, no more options that gets you on the right side at the bottom could have the option to sort the games and applications up or down to make it easier to sort the install queue. There are games that I want I have priority to play, but when the installation queue has approximately 60 games, and other games appear that I have priority to play, it would be nice to be able to organize the sequence of games and applications.

                                      • Allow Grouping of Games into Folders

                                        I know this is something already being implemented if a form, but I would like to be able to group games into folders just like a Windows PC. I'd like to have folders for Far Cry, Halo, Call of Duty, etc to keep these together while trimming down on the size of my games list, making everything more organized overall.
