  1. Is there an alternative to Windows Store?


    I cannot get the "Get" button in Windows Store to work on 2 different PC's. When I click it, the app opens another window that also has a "Get" button which does nothing. I have been through several "repair" steps and websites. Is there an alternative to Windows Store? I cannot waste anymore hours on this. It seems so simple but never works.

    :)

  2. Downloading from Windows Store

    We suggest to clear the Windows Store cache and try again. Follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key+Q
    • type wsreset.exe on the search bar
    • Hit enter key
    This should clear the Windows Store cache after restarting your system.

    Another method if the above steps won't work, check this
