    Microsoft Store is Missing!!

    Hi,

    My Laptop (HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC ) was running on Windows 10 - Version 1903. Since, it was working slow, keypad was not working properly and troubleshooter was not running, it decided to reset my laptop.

    After reset, the above mentioned three problems were solved, but I found that the Microsoft Store is missing.

    Now, these are the methods that I tried to get the Microsoft Store back, but didn't worked-

    1. Tried Restarting laptop several times.

    2. Updated my laptop to Version 1909, thinking it would restore the Microsoft Store, but this method also failed.

    3. Tried Powershell method-

    • Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisalbeDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    4. Tried "wsreset.exe" in Run.

    5. Tried Windows Store Troubleshooter.

    6. Tried DISM commands-

    • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
    • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
    • Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    7. Since, Microsoft Store is not listed in "Apps and features" in Settings, I couldn't try it resetting from there.

    8. At the end, tried resetting my laptop again. But, again Microsoft store is missing.

    After all this, Microsoft Store is still missing. Please, help me to get Microsoft Store back.

    Thanks!!

    Missing windows store

    Hi Jack,

    Are you signing in with a Microsoft User account or a local user account? As an initial step, we suggest that you
    reset the Windows store cache. Here's how:

    • Press Windows logo key + R.
    • Type wsreset.exe in the Run command box, and then press
      Enter.
    • Restart your PC, sign in with a Microsoft User account, and then check if you are able to find Windows Store.

    Let us know how it goes.
