    Microsoft Store not auto updating apps


    This is a bit of an odd one. Microsoft Store on my PC hasn't auto updated any apps or games since around some time in April. This includes built-in apps as well as 3rd party apps.

    Clicking Get Updates in the Store finds no new app updates either. However, if I manually search for an app I've already installed, and open it's listing page, the update is discovered and installed at that point. But I have to do it every time, for every single app.

    Another odd thing I've noticed is that the Store mostly forgets what apps are installed on the PC and the Installed section on shows a couple of them.

    So far I've tried Reseting the Store, running the Troubleshooter (which found no issues), and Reinstalling the Store. Nothing made a difference.

    Is there anything else I can try (I'm a dev so I'm comfortable getting my hands dirty) before just nuking this entire Windows installation and start fresh?

    Current versions:

    • Windows 10 Pro 2004 19041.450
    • Microsoft Store 12008.1001.1.0

    Hi James,

    Since running the troubleshooter for Windows app didn't work, we suggest resetting Windows Store by following the steps below to resolve your issue:

    • Type Apps & features on search box/Cortana and click on it.
    • Look for Microsoft Store app and click on Advance options.
    • Click Reset button and retest.

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide you further assistance.
