  1. Uninstalling MS Store apps?


    How do I uninstall MS Store apps? I tried a lot of bad apps and now everything is in my library, cluttering the UI and making UX terrible. I know I can "hide" them but since I don't intend to ever install them again why can't I remove them permanently?

    Windows 10 Version 2004

    Uninstalled apps stuck "installing" in Microsoft Store (MSN News)

    Hi Will,

    A corrupted Microsoft Store cache is one of the possible reasons why some apps are stuck in an "installing phase" when you try to uninstall them. We suggest that you try running the
    Windows App troubleshooter to troubleshoot the issue.

    If the issue persists, we suggest that you reset the Microsoft Store cache. You can follow the steps below to reset the Microsoft Store cache:

    • Press Windows + R keys to open the run
      command
      box.
    • Type WSReset, then try launching Microsoft Store and sign in.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.

  3. Remove non-operable App downloaded from MS App Store, to remove Already Own

    Remove App downloaded from Microsoft Store App Store because:

    I mistakenly downloaded on PC (MS Surface). When I try to install the app on my phone, it says - already owned. But I cannot get access to, or install it, on the phone. I have tried all steps as suggested in link below.

    Microsoft store says i already own the app

    I can hide the app in my account library on the pc but to no affect on the phone.

    The app does not appear on either the PC Application list (in Settings), nor in the phone list of Apps.

    I want to install the app on my phone.

  4. Uninstalling MS Store apps?

    How do I fix Windows 10 apps from launching the store instead of the actual app?

    This is a sign of app metadata getting damaged.

    Try resetting the app (from the App and Features part of Settings). If that failed, uninstall and reinstall the app.

    This solution is for Windows v1709 and earlier only. 1803 is not stable enough at this time.

    To reset an app:

    1. Press Win+X to open the quick access menu.
    2. Select "Apps and Feature" (which should be on the top)
    3. Find the affected app and select it.
    4. Click on the "Advanced options" hyperlink that just appeared.
    5. In the next screen, press the "Reset" button.

    To wipe-and-reload an app:

    1. Uninstall it.
      1. Right-click on its tile and select "Uninstall". proceed to the next step whether you find an uninstall option or not.
      2. Press Win+X to open the quick access menu.
      3. Select "Apps and Feature" (which should be on the top)
      4. Find the affected app and select it. If you can't find it, skip the next step.
      5. Click on the "Uninstall" button.
    2. Open Microsoft Store
    3. If an update for Microsoft Store is available, install it.
    4. Navigate to the page corresponding to your app. Do this using the search or via the library. Please don't use any other method.
    5. If Microsoft Store thinks the app is still installed, click on "Uninstall" button.
    6. Have every user account on you computer repeat the steps above.
    7. Go back to Microsoft Store and install it.
