  1. Microsoft store download stops and starts repeatedly


    I am currently in the middle of downloading Forza Horizon 4, it was gifted to me but what i am about to describe has never been a problem with gifted games before, the download says downloading and it will show me the download is anywhere from 20-430mbps with 75 (the usual download speed through microsoft store for me) being the median but about every 40 seconds it will rapidly ramp down the download speed until it doesnt even say 0 it just doesnt show the speed then it will start again and ramp up to adound 300-400 mbps and very rapidly scale down to around 60-70 for another maybe 40 seconds and the process will start again, im still making progress on the download but it should have been finished a long time ago i usually download 60gb in about 30minutes max, its been over an hour now and im only just barely as im writing this hitting 30gb not trying to be a negative nelly as it will download in the next few hours im sure but im left wondering why? why is my download speed fluctuating so hard through the microsoft store? it has never done this before with large file games and ive tried pausing and completely stopping the download but that did nothing my date and time are correctly set and logging out and then back on does nothing so why? what is going on with the microsoft store download speeds this is MUCH slower than i download anything ever and my internet is running tip top right now at 250mbps steady leaving me to think the only thing it can be is the microsoft store

    :)

    Microsoft store app stops downloading

    Hi,

    An outdated Store app can cause issues with downloading games. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • Are you using a third-party antivirus program?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest that you download and use the
    Windows app troubleshooter
    . This tool will automatically find and fix common app errors in Windows 10.

    We'll wait for your response and the result of the initial troubleshooting.

  3. Windows 10 Apps from the store wont download

    Hi Sumon,

    Sorry for the delay in response.

    • Do you face this issue only with these apps?
    • Did you try downloading other apps?
    • Did you try stopping these apps and then downloading it again?
    We would suggest you to try the steps mentioned in the link

    • Type troubleshooting in the search
      box
      and hit Enter.
    • Click View all from the left pane and select Windows store apps.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions and check.
    If the steps don't work try these steps:

    Try to reset the Windows store and check.
    • Press Win + R on the keyboard to open run Window.
    • Type wsreset.exe to reset the Windows store cache.
    Hope this information helps.
