    Windows 10

    Check you "Family" settings. Somehow I had my account listed as a child, and it wouldn't let me download apps with an age requirement.

    Hi Brink thank you so much for all your advice

    I think i see what you mean now.

    I signed into the store via my Microsoft account then created a pin number and it all worked ok.

    Then because it was just a test and i thought my computer seem to be slower i reverted back to a local account.

    But what puzzled me was even signed on with a local account i could still access the store then i saw your advice about signing out of the store so i did that and now i need to sign in with a microsoft account again so that's solved.

    It looks like if you once sign in with a microsoft account then revert back to a local account your microsoft stays linked to the store.

    One thing i have noticed since i logged in via a pin number i have two accounts associated with the store

    One is my outlook.com account
    And the other is a Microsoft account

    Is that because of the pin number thing i did

    Your PIN is tied to your account in Windows 10. It'll remain with that account whether you switch to a local or Microsoft account.

    The outlook.com account is your Microsoft account.

    The listed "Microsoft account" item is used to be able to sign in with a new Microsoft account, and have it added to the list.
