    Downloads pause if window is minimized

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Normally, the download should not pause when the window is minimized. However problems might occur due to an app error or incorrect settings.

    You may try the Windows inbuilt troubleshooter for Store apps and see if it works.



    Go to Settings->Update & Security->Troubleshoot->Windows Store Apps->Run the troubleshooter.



    If the troubleshooter is unable to find and fix the issue, you may try resetting the app. Please follow the steps given below to reset the Movies and TV app.



    • Open the Settings app by pressing the
      Windows
      key and the I key together.
    • Go to Apps->Apps & features->Movies & TV->Advanced options –Reset.
    • Follow the onscreen prompts to reset complete the reset operation.


    If resetting the app doesn’t work, you may try the troubleshooting steps given in the article below.

    Feel free to write back if you have any questions or if the issue persists after performing the above steps.

    New here and seeking for help: problems with graphic card

    Thanks very much lilhasselhoffer. I'll start doing what you suggested step by step.

    One question thou: you suggested me to Download the latest driver package from Nvidea. However, the link you posted is for the newly released GeForce GTX 760? Am I supposed to download the drivers for that card?

    Sorry for my questions. As I said, I'm not an expert at all.

  4. Downloads are paused for now reason

    Microsoft Store downloads are extremely slow and keep pausing.

    Hi,

    I've recently purchased Forza Motorsport 7 on the Microsoft Store.

    I just checked my internet download speed and it is a stable 50mbps.

    While downloading the game on Microsoft Store, I can not get faster than 15mbps.

    This means the game will take over three times longer to download than what I expected.

    That isn't my main problem though. For some reason the download keeps pausing constantly every minute. Each pause lasts at least 10 minutes before the download continues again. During each pause, the download sometimes says "Finding Product Files".

    I have had the download running for 1 hour and have only managed to download 170 MB out of 99 GB. This is unacceptable. Is there anyone who can help me out?

    By the way, I have already tried all steps from this answer with no improvement: Microsoft Store Download Speed Painfully Slow

  10. Pause Updates Not Pausing

    in Windows 10 Updates and Activation
    Pause Updates Not Pausing: My Windows 10 1903 updated itself on June 29 th. At that point I chose to pause updates until sometime in August. Today, July 10, it tried to update itself again completely ignoring my pause request. Did I do something wrong or is this a bug? Thank you. 136354
