    How to Re-register Microsoft Store app in Windows 10


    The Microsoft Store app in Windows 10 offers various apps, games, music, movies & TV, and books that users can browse through, purchase, or get for free to download and install for their Microsoft account in Windows 10 PCs and devices.

    If the Store app doesn't open, hangs, or not working correctly, then re-registering the Store will usually fix this issue.

    This tutorial will show you how to re-register Microsoft Store app for your account or all users in Windows 10.

    Make sure that you have the correct time zone, date, and time set to avoid the Store having syncing issues.

    May I ask how do you copy and paste the full command seeing the command is only partially shown in that box-if you highlight the exposed text then try to move right while still highlighted so you can finish the copy and paste it fails you lose the highlight. At least that is my problem with that box. Why not just post the command so you can copy and post it easier?

    Just askin:) -Thanks!

    No problem. Double clicking on the text in the code box will select all of it. :)

    My error is with a double click. Is it using a 10 Pro feature?


    I followed this version which seems to be working, but it's taking a long time doing this:
    Code:
     Deployment operation progress: C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_2015.7.20.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxM
        Initialized

    In that case, please go ahead and post a screenshot showing all of the command prompt to see if it may reveal a culprit. :)

    I don't see anything wrong with the command in your screenshot. It may be that a break in the command line is being entered when copied into the command prompt. See if copying and pasting the command from below may work without the code box.


    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Command “& {$manifest = (Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.WindowsStore).InstallLocation + ‘\AppxManifest.xml’ ; Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $manifest}”

    It may be a moot point now, I tried some other "advice" which accumulated to me deleting the entire C:\Users\Graham\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.WindowsStore... folder. I tried a system reset which did a BSOD loop before restoring.

    I realized I had forgotten to add the link in post #5 so I re added it. Store app broken - Page 3 - Windows 10 Forums
