    If you like, you could try doing a repair install to see if it may restore the app.

    We did it team :)

    Thanks for dealing with my impatient bantering. Since this site has helped me SO much over the years.. and since i was unable to find the exact command literally anywhere... paying it forward. If anyone needs to replace an app your not looking for "winstore" your looking for WindowsApps which is hidden and owned by system in Program files.

    Take ownership, find your app and copy its path. Heres the string I had to use and it went swimmingly. Replace the folder/path with the app your trying to re-add.

    Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay_1.21.13002.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml " -DisableDevelopmentMode
