  1. Had Microsoft Store problems - did "Reset My PC" deleting all files, Immediately after...


    As the title says...I'm perplexed - I didn't even want to resetthe system, and I'm at a loss as to what the hell is going on at this point, I'm not even a long-term win10 user just a couple weeks in, so the fact that this happened so fast in the first place blows my mind.

    All started with having unresolvable issues with an app that was installed, but could not be uninstalled or launched. One day it demanded an update, but wouldn't update - then disappeared (as far as the store said, but the files existed)

    All I could tell the store to do was install it, which it would pretend to do in 2 seconds - then it wouldn't show under installed apps, and back in the store it would offer an install option again. Endless loop with no way out of it through powershell, citing appmanifests weren't in the root directory.



    Please help a stumped guy out here.

    Windows Store Reset


    Why did you delete them?

    It wasn't working for me, set up as live tile but not updating the picture. I then went to featured app in the store as you suggested, then ran wsreset and it started working.

    Was that your steps? I did read them but I forgot what they are now and I seem to have only done 2 steps.
