    Microsoft fixes Windows 10 Store glitch


    Microsoft has fixed a problem with the Windows 10 Store that had prevented a number of users from being able to update existing Windows Store apps and/or download new ones.

    A week after users -- including me -- began reporting problems with the Windows 10 Store, Microsoft seems to have fixed the issue.

    In the early hours of August 11, Microsoft officials said to expect a fix for the Store issue to come via Windows Update within 48 hours. I don't think this ultimately is how Microsoft repaired the problem, however, as I don't see any new Windows Updates in my history beyond the usual Windows Defender definition updates.

    I've asked Microsoft officials for more information on what caused the issue and how the company ultimately fixed it, but have yet to hear back.

    Starting August 8, users were reporting they were unable to access the Windows 10 Store and to use a number of their previously installed Store apps, including the built-in Windows 10 Mail and Calendar. Users could see app updates and pending new app installs queuing in Windows Store, but couldn't get them to download.

    Some of us received intermittent messages indicating the Store server had "stumbled." Microsoft seemingly released a new version of the Windows 10 Store a week ago, which was designed to fix Store download issues, among other problems. But as of August 13, that fix seemed to have done nothing to alleviate the issues.

    While waiting for the Microsoft fix, a number of Windows 10 users found various workarounds, including resetting their Windows 10 machines and disabling various recent Windows 10 updates, to have fixed the Store and Windows Store app issues, they said.

    For those who've had the Windows 10 Store problems mentioned above, try restarting your PC, opening the Store and waiting for the queue to automatically start clearing, which may take a few minutes. Windows Store apps like Mail and Calendar should start working once the queue starts clearing...

    Windows 10

    I've finally gotten around to upgrading my HP Stream 8 from 8.1 with Bing to W10 Home, I had this trouble with the updates but after installing the latest updates to W10 they updated straight away.
    I never had this problem with my 4 computers so it must have been a minor glitch. Very happy with W10 update on the HP Stream 8, everything went as smooth as butter.

    I really enjoyed 8.1 on all my computers and was a little worried about W10 but as usual MS has delivered the goods. I've been waiting for Apple to fix a major glitch on my iPad Air for 18 months and still nothing
    .
    I can't wait to see the new Windows 10 tablets coming out over the next 12 months, I think my iPad days have come to an end, now I've just got to see if they come out with a Hero Windows phone to get me away from Android, I'm already playing around with a couple of cheap Nokia and Windows 10.

    May I ask what Nokia (Lumia) phone models are you playing with and what do you think of the Lumia 640XL?

    I'm playing around with the Lumia 530 and 532, I updated the 532 to Windows 10 Preview and am really liking it so far. I've only looked at the 640 XL, but if nothing else comes on the market, I'm pretty sure I would buy that myself, looks pretty good and the price is good.
    Hopefully if someone here has got one they might be able to give you a better rundown on it.
