How to set your Xbox as your "Home Console"

You will need to do this to ensure that you have the correct permissions to use your digital purchases on your current console.

When you change home consoles, all device licenses for digital content will move to your new home Xbox. These device licenses will no longer be available on your previous home Xbox. In other words, when you switch your home Xbox, access to your content comes with you to your new home Xbox, and anyone signed in can enjoy it. Your previous home Xbox will still give your friends and family access to your stuff when you’re signed in to it.

  1. Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  2. Select Profile & system > Settings > General > Personalization, and then select My home Xbox.
  3. Do either of the following:
  4. Select Make this my home Xbox to designate the console as your home Xbox.
  5. Select Remove this as my home Xbox to remove the designation.
