Achievements don't work on my PC

    I've been running Windows 10 for ages and now that Game Pass has added more quests that revolve around playing PC games as well, I want to solve a long-standing problem: Achievements don't work on my PC.

    They don't track for completion, they don't pop when I've done what is required, and the games don't even show up on my 'Recent Games' list.

    I'm logged in as my account, obviously as I'm using Game Pass via it to play the games in the first place. Googling it only comes up with one solution - the same one other people here have had - make sure the "Connected User Experiences and Telemetry" service is running. It is. I've restarted it. I've restarted it and the PC. I've restarted the PC, then restarted the service...it is clearly NOT the problem.

    It was happening on Windows 10, version 1903 (Build 18362.476) - it's still happening on the latest 1909 build.

    Does anyone have a clue what is causing this and how to fix it?

    Not running through a VPN or anything right? That was a problem I had a couple times when I was playing. Also, and I'm sure it does but always have to ask, does the game you are playing definitely pop achievements on the Windows 10 platform?

    Possibly a stupid question, but it's definitely a game that has achievements, right? Not all Game Pass for PC games have live enabled achievements.

    Download and check the app “Xbox Identity provider”. It may fix it as it did for me when my live account didn’t connect properly to games on win10.
    Tell that to the covenant.
