I have to wonder why we even need to upgrade our individual computers anymore. Can't the new OS run in the Cloud and we just link up? They manage to run other "productivity" packages that way or am I way off base?

If I had put my money into Apple shares instead of purchasing future obsolete, Apple-related

Can't they run any other browser? I never used Explorer as my primary browser. It was notoriously not secure. I wonder if Chrome or Firefox has a version that runs on XP. Probably not Chrome. It's newer than that I think, but surely Netscape ran on it.

No I tried numerous downloads and older versions of various browsers.
None are able to access the internet on XP.
But if someone  does know please tell me and link me to the download  thumbs

I play on windows with my surface. And I play on Android & kindle via FB account. The Surface tablet has Township app so I don't play on explorer. But what bums me out is you can't sign into FB account on the windows app. So I have a baby town with windows & my original on everything else via FB login. Very annoying!

I sign into FB with my Windows account, no problem.  If you are thinking that this is what is keeping you from playing your Win and Android towns together, it's not.  Windows has never been able to play with the other platforms, it doesn't have anything to do with FB.  There is talk that Win11 coming at the end of the year might run Android apps, but we don't know yet if that will affect the games.  Smile

Really? Do you play on the app or thru explorer or chrome? Wow! This is exciting to hear, wonder what I've been doing wrong? Will give it a go. Thank you so much!  Re Win11 running android apps: I'll believe it when I see it given their history 😂 but will certainly "think it into existence!"

If you have two different games, you won't be able to connect both of them to the same Facebook account. Facebook can only remember one game per account. There needs to be a second account you can use for your second game.

Yes, there is a Township app in the Microsoft store on a Windows computer, but that version of TS is incompatible with the mobile versions of the software, so those players need their own coops, friend lists, and sometimes get different events.

Yep, that's what happened with me. The windows township app doesn't accept my FB sign in. Tried so many different ways. Had to build a new town. Will look for mobile version on windows to see if I can log in that way. My phone screen gets so small sometimes! Thanks for the info. Super appreciated 🙂

@Elby714 If you crack this nut can you post a step by step "How To" ?

I have a FB account, never linked a Township before and all I get is a redirect to Mobile FB which I'm not.

I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer and must be missing something as plain as the nose on my face.

Only interested in a FB link in case my Town goes walkabout in the ether.

I downloaded it from the MS store on a PC, so its a program, not an app, right?  😛  I will say, the game does not STAY connected.  Every time I load the game, i have to go into my friends list and hit the FB button telling me to reconnect or I wont see my FB friends.  This is a known problem, not sure how long its been going on.

@dnana1 I may be wrong but "App" is what "Programs" are called now. What a Windows 10 user downloads from the Store is an "App", probably shorthand for "application program"... Wink

You got further than I have with FB.

I firstly played on my iphone but screen was far too small and due to that, really no enjoyment to play at all.  Since then I created a new game on Windows on my PC with no problems at all, connecting through FB.

Can you see all of your Facebook friends?  When you go into your friends tab, do you see a blue box that says 'connect to Facebook' or a similar phrase in the space before Ernie in the list?  If its there, what happens when you click it?

Yes, there's a "connect to FB" button. Which I did. Excited to save eyes & play on whatever. I connected. It started me from beginning. I disconnected, signed out of FB on windows device. Uninstalled TS, restart windows.
Made sure still signed out of FB & FB messenger everywhere (I read that somewhere in troubleshooting connecting game to FB)
Reinstall TS. Restart device. Open TS. Connect to FB. Game starts from beginning (1hr to expand land!!!)

I see none of my FB friends, yet I have my mother duck & ducklings icon indicating I have more than 50 friends, which I don't on windows version. Nonsensical! 

When support got back to me they said "not all platforms compatible" 

What? What does that have to do with the price of milk at a dairy farm? FB is FB!  They didn't respond to that one!

Sure! If I find a strong enough nutcracker, or maybe torrential rains will mold the nuts making super easy to open 😂

My advice on connection to FB, because it is really helpful to have in the game (I have 379 TS friend's on FB-friendly devices - the amt of help u get & can give is amazing come task time) BUT make up a new "fake" FB account with different email address, no real personal info, set privacy so people can request friends, not auto & use a TS icon somehow. I downloaded one online. My only friends are TS people, only groups are TS groups. 

All I did was friend 1 who asked for friends & suddenly 100's requests came in. Only accepted those with TS profile pict or banner. Then as my list grew, accepted those who had 20-30 mutual friends.

Make sense? & your real FB friends won't wonder why ur list jumped so high, etc! 

Hope this isn't too much info & or that it addresses part of what you need if windows store (apps, programs?!) ever works. 

Hopefully it does work for some lucky players 👍
