Microsoft Store doesn't launch


If you're having trouble launching Microsoft Store, here are some things to try:

  • Check for connection problems and make sure that you're signed in with a Microsoft account.
  • Make sure Microsoft Store is up to date: Select Start  > Microsoft Store , then select See more  > Downloads and updates > Get updates. If an update for Microsoft Store is available, it will start installing automatically.
  • Make sure Windows has the latest update:  Select Start , then select Settings  > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates.
  • Check your time and location settings: Select Start , then select  Settings  > Time & Language. Select Date & time to verify your time settings and select Region to check your location.
  • Reset the Microsoft Store cache: Press the Windows Logo Key  + R to open the Run dialog box, type wsreset.exe, and then select OK.
    • Note: A blank Command Prompt window will open, and after about ten seconds the window will close and Microsoft Store will open automatically.
