Microsoft Store Issues

How to Fix Microsoft Store Issue in Windows 10?

The Windows Store, Microsoft Store, or whatever you want to call it, isn’t the most popular app store out there, what with bugs, crashes, and a proclivity for not working at all.

It does, however, contain some useful content (such as these free apps), and if you’re a gamer, you may discover that you need it to download Microsoft-developed titles like Forza Horizon 4 and Gears of War 4. If your Windows Store isn’t working, try these solutions to get it up and running again.

Disable Proxy Connection

1. Open Internet Options by going to Search and typing internet options.

2. Select LAN Settings from the Connections tab.

3. For your LAN, uncheck Use Proxy Server.

4. Select OK.

Although using a proxy to preserve your privacy is a good idea, it might occasionally cause problems with the Microsoft Store. So you can try disabling it and see whether your Microsoft Store still works.

If you’re still concerned about your privacy, a VPN can be a good option. VPN functions similarly to a proxy, but unlike a proxy, it does not interfere with other programmes.

There are a lot of good VPN applications out there, but Private Internet Access (PIA) is one of the easiest to use, so we recommend giving it a try.

Adjust Date and Time

1. Go to Adjust date/time by clicking on the time and date on the right side of your taskbar.

2. If Set time automatically is selected and the time displayed is incorrect, uncheck it.

3. Change the date and time on your computer by clicking Change under Change date and time.

Check your Antivirus

Antivirus software can sometimes cause issues with Microsoft Store by interfering with your PC.

If this is the case, make sure Microsoft Store is permitted to get across your firewall.

You might also want to try removing some antivirus functions to see if that helps. In rare circumstances, you may need to turn off your antivirus completely.

Even if your antivirus is disabled, you may still notice that Microsoft Store is not opening, in which case you will need to deactivate the antivirus.

Reset Store Cache

1. Type wsreset.exe into the Search box.

2. Run WSReset.exe and wait for it to complete.

Resetting the MicrosoftStore cache can help with a variety of MicrosoftStore issues, and it might help with this one as well.

Check your Region

1. Go to the Time & Language section of the Settings app.

2. Select Region & language from the left-hand menu. Set the United States as your Country or Region in the right pane.

Try starting Microsoft Store again after changing your region to see if the problem persists. According to users, your regional settings can cause Microsoft Store to not load.

Create a New User Account

  1. Go to the Accounts area of the Settings app.

2. Select Family & Other People from the left-hand menu. Click Add someone else to this PC in the right pane.

3. Make a decision This person’s sign-in information is not in my possession.

4. Make a decision You can add a user who does not have a Microsoft account.

5. Click Next after entering the appropriate username.

If your Microsoft Store isn’t operating, it could be due to a problem with your user account. The quickest solution to resolve this issue, according to users, is to create a new user account. You can accomplish this by following the procedures outlined above.
