How to change Xbox streaming on Windows 10 to “very high quality”

There’s a “very high quality” option that can be unlocked by tinkering with some of the Xbox app’s configuration files.

To enable:

  1. Edit userconsoledata in the xbox app folder C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.XboxApp_~~~~~~\LocalState
  2. Change IsInternalPreview to true.

As others have noted it can overwhelm your network if you’re due for an upgrade…
