    Windows Store and other Windows apps launch on their own


    I don't know if anyone else is experiencing this problem, but if I am away from my computer for a few minutes, then come back, Windows Store or any other windows app, such as Photos, is open.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Apps launching on their own.

    I know it doesn't provide any real answers, but this is happening frequently to me as well. So you're not alone.

    Possible solution

    So this may be a solution to this issue, at least it has been working for me. If you open the store and click the little half person in the upper right portion next to the search box, then choose settings, you can turn off the auto update and live tile features. I'm not sure why, but this seems to have worked for me as it hasn't reoccurred. (Turning off the app update makes sense the more I think about it.)
