    MS Store Apps that are owned but not installed - Security Risk?


    Where can I find the defined term for "owned" in the context of MS store apps?

    Is this a category unique from installed or never installed in terms of permissions/terms/access?

    If yes, does it depend on the app, or is their an umbrella term adopted by the MS Store apps?


    Asking as previous posts seem to indicate we cannot delete from our account.

  2. Unable to install Apps downloaded from Windows Store

    Hi, Vinesh.

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.
    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way.



    I suggest that you perform the steps mentioned below and check if the issue occurs.



    Step 1: Run App Troubleshooter.

    Note: The troubleshooter automatically fixes some issues that might prevent your apps from running, including suboptimal screen resolution and incorrect security or account settings.

    • Type “Troubleshooting” in the search box and press Enter.
    • Click on ‘View All’ on the top left pane.
    • Click on “Windows Store Apps” from the list and follow the on-screen prompts for troubleshooting.

    Step 2:

    If the issue persist, I would suggest that you un-install and re-install the app from Windows Store.



    Note: Exit store when trying to re-install the app.

    Hope this information helps and let us know the status of the issue we will be glad to help you further.

    Microsoft store shows app Installed...not so

    Tried both suggestions as the Troubleshooting step did not fix the issue...Reset Windows Store and now the Appl in the store shows I OWN it...prior it showed it as installed.

    So still cannot re-install the app......

    Windows Store to Pack "Mature" Games and Apps

    They announce this right after they said weren't going to carry any of it... Ya think some investors told them to stfu and take money? *Laugh :laugh:

    I wonder how long it will be before you can't install noncertified apps? The app store is the 1st stepping stone. Although, you'd have to be an idiot to give 30% to these clowns.
