  1. I cannot restore/reinstall Microsoft Store


    Help please! My microsoft store app was deleted from my PC. I have tried the steps shown in various posts, but none have worked. Since the recommended fixes are from 2019/2020, I am hoping someone can provide steps to reinstall the app.I have also reset my PC. I do not have an original Windows dvd and cannot find reference to my original windows license code. Thank you!

    :)

    Restore Microsoft Store application in Windows 10

    After multiple attempts, I managed to get Store open by enabling Developer mode (as suggested by one of the posters here) and running the command "Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}" in Powershell. Not sure if is exactly the solution since I've tried different steps suggested by different users in different forums (including uninstalling Store separately) but hey, I am not complaining!

    I cannot restore/reinstall Microsoft Store

    No Microsoft Store, can't reinstall, Troubleshooter says to Sign in, but I am signed in

    Method 1 of 4

    Reinstall the Store app via Settings
    This method can be performed in Windows 10 1803 and above versions only.

    Step 1: Navigate to Settings app > Apps > Apps & features.

    Step 2: Locate Microsoft Store entry and click on it to reveal Advanced options link. Click Advanced options link.

    reinstall the store app in Windows 10

    Step 3: In the Reset section, click the Reset button. As you can see in the screenshot, the description clearly says that resetting the app will reinstall the app. Click the Reset button when you see the confirmation dialog to complete the reinstall.

    Method 2 of 4

    Reinstall preinstalled apps via PowerShell
    Step 1: Open PowerShell with admin rights. To do so, type Windows PowerShell in the search box to see PowerShell in results, right-click on PowerShell, and then click Run as administrator option.

    Step 2: In the PowerShell prompt, type the following command and press Enter key.

    Get-Appxpackage –Allusers

    Step 3: Scroll down and locate the entry of the Store app and copy the package name. If you want to reinstall any other app, locate its entry and copy its PackageFullName.

    Tip: After selecting the PackageFullName, use Ctrl + C to copy. You won’t be able to right-click and copy.

    Step 4: Finally, execute the following command:

    Add-AppxPackage -register “C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\” –DisableDevelopmentMode

    In the above command, replace PackageFullName with the package name of the Windows Store or any other app that you copied in Step 3 and replace “C” with the drive letter of the driver where Windows 10 is installed. Good luck!

    Method 3 of 4

    Reinstalling all apps via PowerShell
    Note that the following command reinstalls not just the Store app but also all default apps that ship with Windows 10. So when you reinstall all apps, you might lose data stored in apps and you might need to configure these apps again.

    NOTE: Although the command reinstalls most of the native apps, the command might fail to reinstall some apps like Cortana and Edge.

    Step 1: Open Windows PowerShell with admin rights. The easiest way to launch PowerShell as administrator is to type PowerShell in the search box and then simultaneously press Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys.

    Or, type PowerShell in the search box, right-click on the PowerShell entry in the result and then click Run as administrator.

    Step 2: Close running apps, if any.

    Step 3: In the PowerShell, copy and paste the following command and then press Enter to execute it.

    Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

    This may take some time and you might see some errors. Simply ignore all errors and wait for command to complete its job.

    Step 4: Once done, open the Start menu and search for the app that you wanted to reinstall. It should be there.

    And if you’re having issues with apps installed from the Store, please use the official Troubleshooter to fix Store apps issues.

    Method 4 of 4

    The last resort: Create a new user account
    In some cases, the above methods may fail to reinstall or restore one or more preinstalled apps. If those methods fail and you can’t live without your favorite app, like Store, the definite way to get back the app in shape or restore it is to create a new user account. Yes, a new user account will have all apps including the Store app.

    To create a new user account, open Accounts section of Settings app, click Family and other users, click Add someone else to this PC, and then follow simple on-screen instructions to create a new user account. Once the new account is ready, you can then move existing data from your old account to the new one.

    Good luck!
