  1. MICROSOFT STORE


    Hi,

    My new pc is running Windows 10 and works perfectly. But one day I had one unexplained crash.

    When I logged back in, everything was fine except that I noticed that the shortcut to Windows store was missing and that I could not access Windows store anymore.

    I thought that it was not a big deal and that it should be easy to reinstall. But no it wasn't.

    I searched the net and found different ways to reinstall it, I tried all of them at least twice and even some that seemed a bit bizarre but none of them worked.

    It started to intrigue me despite the fact that I can live without Windows store, it became a challenge.

    As a last resort I decided to contact the Microsoft helpline, their reply was no problem we will sort it out.

    A Microsoft tech took control of my pc and I could see him trying the procedures I had already tried and he ended up like me with no success.

    He told me the last solution is to reinstall Windows 10 and that it would not affect my files. I agreed and he downloaded a new Windows 10 version on my pc, all I had to do was to go through the process of reinstall myself.

    It took quite a few hours but worked, except for the fact that the Windows store shortcut was still not there, and I still cannot access the store.

    So at this stage I gave up, but why is it so difficult to reinstall this thing ? And is anybody in my situation ?

    :)
