Windows 10: App from windows store not showing in all apps?

    App from windows store not showing in all apps?

    Hi everyone,

    I recently downloaded the google app from the windows store. I would like to pin it to start, but strangely it doesn't show up in the all apps menu. The only way that I have found to open it is by searching for it in the store and opening it from there. When I do open it from the store, it doesn't show up in my task bar. Also when I open it, it doesn't show when I swipe from the left edge on my surface pro 4. I am also unable to uninstall and reinstall since the I cant do so from the windows store and I am unable to find the app anywhere else.

    Am I missing something or does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    Hello, I recently had the same problem with another app. Look if there is not some update for your app.
