1. Clear Cache On Xbox

In my testing, clearing the Xbox cache removes temporary data. It increases overall console performance by removing Xbox system and game errors, solving several Xbox issues, and ensuring smooth system running.

2. Switching Xbox Profiles

Switching Xbox profiles enables you to correct some license problems. It keeps track of your games and their processing but creates unnecessary complexities when you use an incorrect profile, purchase items from a profile, or play a game someone else purchases when their home console is not set up.

3. Power Cycle Your Xbox Console

A power cycle is the best fix when your Xbox delays, display problems, malfunctions, etc. Power cycling helps your console in several ways, including clearing the cache, expanding the amount of accessible RAM, resolving connectivity issues, etc. 

4. Uninstall And Reinstall The Game/App

Uninstalling and reinstalling games on Xbox improves the game’s performance by enhancing the game graphics, making the gaming experience more exciting.

5. Factory Reset Your Xbox

Factory resetting the Xbox corrects all software issues brought on by repetitive or corrupted data. Still, it deletes all of your data, which means you lose everything for nothing if the hardware is the problem. So, you should try this method after backing up any crucial data you want to keep if none of the above fixes worked.

6. Check Your Internet Device & Speed

In our testing, we find that all our devices other than the Xbox connected to the same wifi connection are causing issues. So, we try to restart our router and check the internet speed. Hence, the problem was also fixed and worked for a Reddit user.

7. Contact Xbox Support

I suggest you contact Xbox Support If none of the above solutions work for you. They can provide personalized guidance and troubleshoot your specific issue, as your problem requires more advanced solutions.
