Windows 10: Apps keep opening store Solved

    Apps keep opening store


    All of my system apps will only open the store instead of the app.
    Windows update - store opens
    Power options - store opens
    All settings - store opens

    Regular apps (weather, news, etc) open just fine.
    Anyone else encounter this?

    Welcome to Ten Forums, Cranky Dragon. I think I'd be cranky too.

    There's something wrong with your installation, which, of course, you already know. There's no ISO available for Build 10240 that I know of or I'd tell you to do a clean install.

    If you have an ISO of a previous build (not 10166!), a clean install of that and then let it update might work.

    Welcome to Windows Ten Forums, CrankyDragon.

    Sorry, Wyn, but by no means reinstall at this point, for it will not activate. They have blocked all that temporarily.

    Try these:

    Apps - Re-register in Windows 8 and 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Store - Re-register in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    You know what, after realizing how close it is to official launch I'm not even going to worry about it.
    I'll be doing a clean install of the final version anyways so I'll just wait.

    Lol, fire! That's ok. Looks like it turned out for the better. Yeah, found out the hard way. I advise by doing things the wrong way.

    Ok. Did you try Brink's tutorials?
