  4. Unable to link device to Microsoft Store

    Device not connected to microsoft store so cant download apps

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Method 1: Try Signing in to your Microsoft account on your Windows 10 device to sync your settings and Microsoft Store purchases across all your devices. You can set up a new device with your Microsoft account, or if you already
    made a user account.

    Method 2: Log out and Login back to store.

    Steps:

      1. Open store application on your pc.
      2. Click on the ellipses on right top corner of the screen.
      3. Logout and login back.

    You can also try some troubleshooting from the following
