  1. Windows won't let me change new app location. Error 0x80070005


    I recently did a reinstall of windows on my computer as the windows security had stopped working (it fixed the issue) and it messed with my windows apps. All of them said they needed reinstalled, so I went to go reinstall them.


    I tried changing the location for "New apps will save too:" to my D: Drive, where they used to be saved, but I'm getting hit with "We couldn't set your default save location." (Error code 0x80070005)


    I don't mind having to uninstall all my windows 10 apps from the Microsoft Store, I just want the situation fixed. Anyone have a solution?

    :)

    Can't Update Apps From Windows Store Error 0x80070005


    Hi, please do this as a matter of routine:
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!

    Then re-register apps:
