  1. Windows Store - Cant download apps + Updates stuck on starting/pending


    I have been having isues with windows store recently. I have the XBOX Game Pass Ultimate and have been trying to download games from the pass on my desktop and everytime I do the progress bar is stuck on "Starting". After many google searches I decided to uninstall the Xbox Beta app and re-download it, however every time I attempt to install the app the button does nothing. I was hoping someone could offer some assistance?


    Very similar issue to Shelholtz's post from 2018:

    Windows Store download stuck on PENDING/STARTING DOWNLOAD

    Recently I have tried to download a game on the Windows store on Windows 10. It was a free game. It didn't get past the pending part and I couldn't do anything. I have tried:

    • Press Windows button + R Type wsreset.exe
    • Troubleshooting the windows update thing
    I want to be able to download the game without clearing all my apps. It is now on the 'Starting download' part and is stuck again. I have previously downloaded other apps and it usually downloads very fast.

    Could someone please give me a solution?

    Thanks

  3. Windows 10 store on phone stuck pending

    Yes! Yes! Yes! I have found the solution a little bit typical but it will save you from resets and losing your data.

    STEPS

    1. Select update all in downloads and updates in store in windows 10 mobile phone.

    2. Let them start downloading .

    3. Now select pause all in same menu.

    4. This time you will get two option in front of all apps resume and cancel even on those apps which are stuck.

    5. Now cancel the every app from list by clicking on cross one by one.

    6. Now you have got empty download list but still you will see stuck apps in phone's app list at pending.

    7. Again open the store and search there for the same app which is stuck on your phone.

    8. Click on install on app page in store and wait.

    9. A pop up menu will come written something went wrong just close it and keep waiting on same page.

    10. Now the final step app will start downloading automatically and what you have to do is just click on cross when it comes.

    11. BINGO! App has been removed from your app list no hard reset no lose of data just a little patience is required i have found the solution myself because i was sailing in same boat.

    Windows Store - Cant download apps + Updates stuck on starting/pending

    Store apps will not download or update

    Yet again I am unable to download or update apps from the Store. I now have fourteen pending or otherwise stuck. In the past I have solved this by turning the Windows Firewall (managed by Norton) back on temporarily but this time it is already on. I have tried resetting the Store cache and other fixes but nothing works. sfc and DISM have been run.

    Suggestions please?
