    • Open Settings, then Apps.
    • In the left pane, click Apps & features.
    • Look for and click on the app Store or
      Microsoft Store
      .
    • Click Advance options, then Reset.
    • A pop up This will permanently delete the apps data on this device, including your preferences and sign-in details message will appear, click
      Reset.
    Feel free to let us know if you need further details.

    Regards.

    This worked for me.

    Also I tried to manually download the apps, which where waiting to be downladed.

    And the next day you could see these apps being downloaded.

    But as mentioned, try above steps first.

    Hello, awaiszmankhan.

    You can reset the Windows Store through Settings. Follow these steps:

    • Open Settings, then Apps.
    • In the left pane, click Apps & features.
    • Look for and click Store or Microsoft Store.
    • Click Advance options, then Reset.
    • A pop up This will permanently delete the apps data on this device, including your preferences and sign-in details message will appear, click Reset.

    The action mentioned above, does work.

    After about one week, the problems did come back.

    What I did now, was start one download manually (with the three dots on the right). The rest will download automatically.

    Now I have upgraded Windows 10 to Build 17115.rs4 and so far so good.

    No problems regarding the store.
