    What's the secret to installing/updating apps from the Microsoft Store?


    I am unable to do anything useful at the Microsoft store. I went there to get an app advertised elsewhere and over the past five days, I've been unable to get any further than "Downloading" I saw a notification that there were 15 updates waiting for me so I was curious. I noticed that there are updates for the Store and the "App installer" and thought that perhaps I needed to update them first -- same problem, they never actually download.


    There are zero instructions there to give me any idea of what I might be doing wrong. I Xed out all the crappy apps that I would never want and everything just sits there as "Pending". How do I get them to actually install? Clicking on the circle just puts them in some sort of pending hell.


    Also, where the hell do the downloads go? What happened to a straightforward "Download" button that lets the user a) control where the file should be stored and b) see some sort of download progress?


    Is there somewhere I can go to just get installer files for the things I want and get this done?

    :)

    • Look for Microsoft Store app and click on Advance options.
    • Click Reset button and retest.
