  3. Store crashes in window 10 : you'll need a new app to open this: ms-windows-store

    I just added my wife, Melissa, as a new user account and now the Microsoft Store app is not even listed. When I click on adding an app from your Edge homepage it still shows the window:

    You'll need a new app to open this ms-windows-store

    I have already typed in the powershell commands suggested and restarted and its still not working. What is the next step? I am using a Dell XPS All In One that started with WIndows 8 - upgraded to 8.1 and then upgraded to WIndows 10.

    Thanks in advance, Jeff
