Go through the instructions in this troubleshooting tutorial to reset, repair, and reinstall the MS Store in Windows 10 and 11.

Before You Reinstall the Microsoft Store App

There are several reasons why you should reinstall the Microsoft Store on your computer. For example, it could be because you have trouble installing apps, encounter cryptic error codes, or find the store itself missing.
However, before you uninstall and reinstall the Microsoft Store, it’s best to clear the program’s cache, and then reset and repair the program. It’s also a good idea to update Windows. These actions often clear minor technical glitches and could even allow you to avoid reinstalling the Microsoft Store altogether. Even better, they are quick and easy to perform.

Clear Windows Store Cache

Windows 10 and 11 have a built-in Microsoft Store reset tool. It automatically clears the Microsoft Store cache and is the fastest way to fix unexpected problems. Learn about other ways to clear the Microsoft Store cache.

Run Windows Store Apps Troubleshooter

Use the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter to scan and fix the Microsoft Store for problems. Like the Microsoft Store reset tool, it’s built into the operating system, so you don’t have to download anything.

Repair Microsoft Store

Repair the Microsoft Store via the Apps & Features console in Windows to eliminate file corruption issues with the application.

Reset Microsoft Store

Reset the Microsoft Store to factory defaults to resolve problems that stem from a broken settings configuration. Prepare to sign back in with your Microsoft Account after you do that.

Update Microsoft Windows

Install the latest operating system updates through Windows Update to fix potential conflicts between Windows and the Microsoft Store. You can skip this and update Windows after reinstalling the Microsoft Store.

Reinstall Microsoft Store App via PowerShell

If repairing or resetting the Microsoft Store did not help, it’s time to delete the program and install it from scratch. Unlike other applications, you can’t remove it via the Apps & Features console in Windows. Instead, you must use an elevated Windows PowerShell console for uninstallation and reinstallation. Note: If you have a standard Windows account, ask a user with administrative privileges to reinstall the Microsoft Store. Get-AppxPackage -allusers WindowsStore | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppxPackage -allusers Microsoft.WindowsStore | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} Alternatively, reinstall the Microsoft Store and all Store apps bundled with Windows. Only do that if the problem is severe and affects multiple applications. Execute the PowerShell commands below:

Get-AppXPackage | Remove-AppxPackage Get-AppXPackage -allusers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

Alternative Method to Reinstall Windows Store

Another way to reinstall the Microsoft Store is to remove it via Windows PowerShell, but add the program back using the latest application package files from the Microsoft servers. However, the only way to generate the download links is through a third-party download portal. Note: If you’re concerned about the safety of the application packages you download, use a third-party antivirus utility for Windows to check the files for security threats. store.rg-adguard.net

Microsoft.NET.Native.Framework.2.2_2.2.29512.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx Microsoft.NET.Native.Runtime.2.2_2.2.28604.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx Microsoft.UI.Xaml.2.7_7.2208.15002.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx Microsoft.VCLibs.140.00_14.0.30704.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe.appx Microsoft.WindowsStore_22210.1401.6.0_neutral_~_8wekyb3d8bbwe.msixbundle

Note: If you use a 32-bit or the ARM version of Windows, make sure to download the AppX installers—the first four items on the list—that contain x86 or arm in the file name, respectively. If you have trouble installing any of the AppX installers, install them via Windows PowerShell using the following command: Add-AppxPackage -Path “C:\Users[Username]\Downloads\filename.Appx” Replace C:\Users[Username]\Downloads\filename.Appx with the folder path and filename of the AppX package. Finally, rerun the MSIXBundle.
