Although many users do not use it much, it is expected to grow in the future. However, sometimes there may be failures. So one solution is to uninstall the store. But to ensure optimal system operation, it is advisable to reinstall it. So in today’s post, we will learn how to install the Microsoft Store in Windows 10.

If the problems still persist, then do the following to uninstall the store. Open a PowerShell with administrator privileges by pressing Win+X and selecting the option:

Please run the following command:

This will force the uninstallation of the store. Consequently, it will not appear in the start menu and we will not be able to use it.

How to install the Microsoft Store

Just as it is not easy to uninstall it, it is not easy to reinstall the store. In fact, Microsoft claims that the only way is to reinstall Windows. However, here are a couple of options. First, from PowerShell with administrator privileges please run the following:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"}

However, some users have reported that the command does not work for them. In such cases, we will do the following. The first thing to do is to enable script execution in PowerShell. To do this, follow the steps in this tutorial. It is now necessary to display the integrated applications of the system. With this in mind, in the PowerShell as administrator run this command:

Get-Appxpackage –Allusers.

Below is a list of integrated system applications. Please check Microsoft.WindowsStore. Next, copy the entire line corresponding to PackageFullName.

Then, use this syntax:

Add-AppxPackage –register "C: \ pro

In my case it would look like this:

Add-Microsoft.WindowsStore_12104.1001.1.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe –register "C: \ pro

With this procedure, Windows Store will make a factory configuration. So it will return to its original values. Okay, so we have seen how to install the Microsoft Store. A good way to solve problems with this element. See you soon!
