    How do i restore the windows store? or reinstall windows store.

    hi gurus,

    I have been facing issue with latest windows 10 mandatory update which i had to do on 10 Nov. Not sure which version that was. After that update which took around 2 hours, I got the screen flashing issue which got resolved after deselecting the windows error reporting and problem reporting services.
    Then started to face the issue that png/jpeg files were not opening in windows photo viewer app. Getting error, "cannot open because the app is updating."
    To resolve this I did the powershell command to remove the restrictions. After that I saw that the windows store icon totally dissappeared from the status bar.
    When I type store in cortana I get :

    How do i restore the windows store? or reinstall windows store.
