Better Sorting in My games & apps

Our team has made it even easier to find what you’re looking for in any games & apps. From now on,  articles such as “a,” “an” and “the” will no longer be used to sort titles when using the “Sort A-Z” and “Group by letter” views; for example, “The Witcher” will now be found under “W” instead of “T.” Thanks so much to our Xbox community for helping prioritize this change by voting in our recent “My games & apps” Idea Drive, and don’t forget to check the Xbox Idea Hub for other topics to which you can contribute!
