  1. Microsoft store stops downloading games when playing a different game


    Hey guys I was wondering if there is an option I'm missing on the store on PC. Whenever I start up a game even if its not from the Microsoft store game. If I launch an offline game or mostly offline game on steam it will stop my Microsoft store game from downloading with no obvious way to restart it and have it work while I play something else.

    :)

    Hi Mosey,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are facing problem with Microsoft Store Apps and games.

    It would be grateful if you can reply to this question in order to assist you further:

    • Do you receive any error message or code when you try to play the games or download games from Windows Store?
    • What happen when you try to play the Microsoft Solitaire collection games?
    • Do you face issue only while downloading games or even other apps from Windows Store?

    Note: Basic information on Apps

    • UAC (User Account Control) must be enabled.
    • To access the Windows Store and to download and run apps, you need an active Internet connection and a screen resolution of at least
      1024 x 768.
    • To snap apps, you need a screen resolution of at least
      1366 x 768.
    • Make sure video card driver is updated.
    • Make sure that Date and Time in your device is correct and up-to date.

    Let's try the below steps and check if it helps:

    Step 1: Try clearing the Store Cache:

    • Press the Windows key + R keys.
    • In the Run window, type
      WSReset.exe
      and click “Ok”.
    Step 2: Also I would suggest you to run
    Windows Store Troubleshooter and check if it helps:

    1. Type Troubleshooter in the
    search bar
    and click on it from the list.

    2. Click on view all and select
    Windows Store Apps
    and click next.

  3. Using games from the microsoft store

    Hi Lloyd,

    Let's isolate your concern by answering the following questions:

    • What game are you referring to?

    • Are you accessing the web version or the downloaded digital version of the game?
    • Are you getting any error messages?
    If you're playing the digital version, we suggest running the Windows apps troubleshooter provided on this
