Run a Windows Store app diagnostic

On Windows 10, the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter is an automated tool that can help you reset individual apps or fix app initialization issues.

Before we begin, it’s important to note that the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter only works for apps that are downloaded from the Microsoft Store. If you’re having issues with a third-party app, you’ll need to contact the developer for support. With that said, let’s get started.

To run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter:

  1. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot.
  2. Under “Get up and running,” select Windows Store Apps and then Run the troubleshooter.
  3. The troubleshooter will now scan your PC for problems and attempt to fix them automatically. Once it’s finished, restart your computer and check if the issue has been resolved.
  4. If the issue persists, you can try resetting individual apps by going to Settings > Apps > Apps & features, selecting the app in question, and then clicking “Advanced options.”
  5. Scroll down and click “Reset.” Keep in mind that this will delete all data associated with the app, so you’ll need to set it up again from scratch.

Reinstall the Microsoft Store

The Microsoft Store offers a central location to download apps, games, books, and more on your Windows 10 device. Over time, it’s possible for the Store to become cluttered or damaged, which can impact its performance. If you’re having issues with the Store, uninstalling and reinstalling it may help to resolve the problem. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Settings app and go to “Apps.”
  2. Scroll down and find “Microsoft Store.” Click on it and then select “Uninstall.”
  3. Restart your computer.
