If an open Store app doesn't respond, you can terminate (force close) it. All processes related to the app will be force terminated.

Starting with Windows 10 build 17063, Microsoft has included a new option to terminate Store apps from the Start menu and Apps page in Settings. This makes it even easier to terminate a Store app as needed.

This tutorial will show you how to terminate Store apps in Windows 10.
