  1. Microsoft Store and most apps from or related to Microsoft won't open


    This has been happening since last night. I was messing with the permissions and ownerships of the WindowsApps folder in Program Files so I could have better access to it, and I suddenly wasn't able to open several apps, such as the Microsoft Store, Minecraft, Slack, Get Help, Feedback Hub, and possibly others. For most of them, it would open briefly and show the splash image it always shows when you open it, then it would close immediately after. For Slack, it would show a dialogue box that had the directory of the file it was trying to open, and some text (I can't remember what the text said, but it wasn't very helpful). I've already tried doing all that stuff involving Powershell, like reinstalling the apps, and scanning for file integrity errors, and I've even gone as far as resetting my computer (while keeping my files), and that still didn't fix it. I've tried opening it using a different account, but when I click on it, it does nothing. I rely on several of these applications every day. Does anyone know what I should do?

    Microsoft is purging a lot of low quality apps from the Windows Store

    "Microsoft is sending emails to some Windows Store developers informing them that their apps have been removed from the Store for violating its quality standards."

    "Neowin reports that app developers have been receiving these emails over the past couple of days:

    In its latest review of the Store, Microsoft is evaluating if the published apps are good enough to be listed in the Windows Store. This includes publicly available apps as well as private beta apps. Additionally, Microsoft is also asking developers to delete any promotional campaigns for their apps to prevent advertising charges. Similarly, app name reservations are also being nullified; which means that if your app is unpublished, there's no guarantee that you'll be able to republish it under the same name.

    Officially, the policies for the Microsoft Store says that apps must have "distinct and informative metadata" and "provide a valuable and quality user experience". There are also some specific standards that must be in the apps, including having a name that is not similar to another app or device, along with offering a description that is accurate about its features and functions.

    There have certainly been many Windows Store users who have complained over the years about the large number of apps published that are clones of other apps or ones that are simply poorly made. Hopefully, this new move by Microsoft will help to curb these issues, at least for now.
