    Windows Firewall blocks App Store from downloading new apps


    Let's try to check if the app store you're referring to if it's really blocked by Windows Firewall. See these steps:

    • Open Windows Firewall from the taskbar >
      Firewall & network protection
      > Allow an app through firewall.
    • A new window will show up containing the list of the apps that ca be allowed through Firewall.
    • Look for the app you want to be accessed, and make sure that the Domain, Private and Public are ticked. That would allow the app store to be accessed.

    Let us know what happens after doing the suggestion.

  3. Blocked app is still playable, and doesn't look like it's staying blocked on the list

    Hi Courtney,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. Let me assist you.

    • Is the child account signed in as a local or a Microsoft user account?

    I suggest you to check the Firewall settings on the system.


    • Block the app from Recent Activity.
    • Press “Windows Key + X” and select Control Panel.
    • Go to System and Security and select Windows Firewall.
    • Click on “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”.
    • Select Firewall Settings and check the status of the app there.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.

    Can Windows Firewall block outgoing connections yet? If not, it's one step above useless.
