Along the bottom of the app, you will see four icons, Home, Search, Play later and Profile.
Head to Profile
and select the small settings cog
in the top right of the screen.
Scroll down to Select Default Console
Select the Xbox One you wish to be your default console
Games will now be installed to that console
For PC, head to the settings cog
Scroll down to Select Default PC
Select the PC you wish to install Xbox Game Pass games to.

on your PC for this option to show up – this is the app that controls your Xbox Game Pass for PC games catalogue.
