Clear Windows store cache


  • Press Windows key + R to open run box.
  • Type WSReset.exe and hit enter.

By doing this, all store cache and corrupt settings are reset and your Windows store shall open normally. This post details the Reset Windows Store cache feature.


Method 2. Try disabling any recently installed third-party anti-virus suite.

If you have recently installed a security suite on your system, that might be preventing Windows 10 App Store from working. So try disabling the anti-virus and then check if Windows Store starts working for you.


Method 3. Go Command Prompt mode

If Windows Store is still not working for you, click on Windows key + R (this will open Command Prompt). Type (or copy) and enter the following command as it is:


powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $EnvSmiley FrustratedystemRoot\WinStore\AppxManifest.xml


Method 4. Use Microsoft’s troubleshooting tool

Go to Microsoft website and hit the Run button. Doing this will download a program on your computer. Install the program, this will allow Microsoft to check whether some preset values are correctly specified on your system. If not, Microsoft will change it for you.
