  1. I'm having an issue with the Microsoft Store, I can't get the dang thing to launch.


    Long story short, a few weeks ago I was having an issue with my SSD, where Windows 10 was installed to, it was just going bad, so instead of doing a fresh install of windows on a new drive, I used a drive cloning program to clone my SSD to my 5 TB HDD. Everything has been working fine, albeit my boot time nearly doubled, but I didn't have any issues until today when I finally decided to open the Microsoft Store to download some games, and it just won't launch, it is not in "Apps and Features" at all, and the multiple commands I have tried in Powershell from the internet to reinstall the store or fix it haven't worked, it just pops up saying something like the file path isn't valid, and yes I made sure that the new drive has the same drive letter as the old one. I've also tried wsreset a couple of times, but it doesn't help. I'm hoping there is something I can do without doing a clean install of Windows. thanks for your help ahead of time

    :)
