    Reset the store using the automatic troubleshooter (1) or the manual reset (2).


    2) Fix Microsoft StoreFor the Microsoft store problem see if this fixes it:
    Start from a fresh boot so that software/applications are closed.
    Keyboard: click windows + r keys simultaneously
    type or copy and paste: C:\Windows\System32
    look for WSReset.exe
    Right click on it and left click on run as administrator
    Do you want to allow this device to make changes to your account: yes
    A pop up will then appear: A black box with title bar: C: \Windows\System32\WSReset.exe
    It will then close and Microsoft store will appear.
