  3. Microsoft Store app not launching

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    1. Since when are you facing this issue?
    2. Do you get any error code when you try to open the store app?
    3. Which build version of Windows 10 you are using currently?


    Refer the article to check
    Which Windows operating system am I running?




    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    Method 1:



    Reset Microsoft store.



    1. Press Windows key + R. This will open
      Run. Alternatively, you can go to Start and search for Run.
    2. In Run dialog box, type
      wsreset
      and hit enter.


    The command will reset the store cache and open the app once the command is complete.



    Method 2:



    Create a new user account and check. Refer the article to

    create a local user or administrator account in Windows 10
    .



    Also, you can refer the article

    .



    Hope it helps.
